MANILA, Philippines – The husband of actress Sunshine Dizon was involved in a car accident that killed a 60-year-old woman in Pampanga province.

John Timothy Tan is now facing reckless imprudence resulting in homicide and other traffic violations for the death of Johara Alignaye, a member of the Badjao tribe.

Witnesses claimed that Tan was driving his black car too fast when he hit Alignaye along Barangay Balibago in Angeles City past 11 p.m. Monday.

“Matulin po takbo. Pagkabangga kumaripas ng takbo ang kotse,” said witness Junell Magnaye.

Dizon’s husband reportedly tried to escape but felt guilty and decided to return to face the charges against him.

Reports said Tan refused to issue any comment regarding the incident. -Jayvie Dizon, ABS-CBN Pampanga
