MANILA, Philippines – Two people died while two others were badly injured after three vehicles rammed into each other on the northboung lane of C5 flyover along Bagong Ilog in Pasig City on Sunday.

A report from radio dzMM identified the casualties as taxi driver Florentino Eusebio and his passenger Maria Consuelo Magnaye.

The other two injured victims were identified as Rene Baytan, who was driving a motorcycle, and Maybeline Perez, who was riding her Mitsubishi Fushion.

Both were rushed to the hospital after the accident.

Initial investigations said Perez was traversing the southbound lane when her car smashed into an electric post along the center island of the flyover.

Because of the impact, Perez’s Mitsubishi Fushion got dragged into the other side of the flyover.

That was when the cab and motorcyle collided into it. – From a report by Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
