MANILA, Philippines – Annie Ayroso, the manager of Alyssa Alano, denied the actress was drunk when she figured in an accident early Sunday morning.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, Ayroso said Alano came from her house and the only reason she went out was to go to a drugstore.

While Alano was speeding along Marcos Highway, Ayroso stressed that the actress was not intoxicated, saying the actress just lost control over her sports utility vehicle (SUV).

“Shini-shift daw niya ang gear, hindi daw niya mapagalaw at pati manibela, hindi niya mapaikot. Bigla na lang daw gumalaw ng dirediretso. Wala na, hindi na niya kayang i-control,” she said.

According to an investigation, Alano was speeding along the westbound lane of Marcos Highway near SM City Marikina when her SUV hit the steel barrier of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority at the center island.

The actress was immediately rescued and rushed to the hospital as one of the metal parts of the barrier pierced through Alano’s right abdomen.

Ayroso reported that Alano is now in better condition.

The other four people who were also hurt in the accident are reportedly recuperating too. – from a report by Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
