LUBAO, Pampanga – At least seven persons were reported dead after a truck hit a row of vehicles at an intersection of the Gapan-San Fernando-Olongapo highway in this province last week.
The provincial police said the truck developed engine trouble causing its driver Cesar Sabanate, 29, to lose control of the wheel.
The truck hit 11 vehicles, mostly cars and jeepneys that were waiting for the traffic lights to change to green.
One of the fatalities was identified as Micaela Jimenez, 16, who died while being rushed to the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Barangay Remedios in this town. 
The incident snarled traffic in the area, which was said to be prone to accident.
The municipal government had installed traffic lights in the area to prevent accidents.
