MANILA, Philippines – A trailer truck collided with a sports utility vehicle (SUV) early Wednesday morning, causing traffic along Osmeña Highway corner Quirino Avenue in Makati City.

SUV driver Juan Lorenzo Godino said he was driving by the intersection past 2 a.m. when a trailer truck suddenly turned right and hit his car.

The collision wrecked the bumper of Godino’s vehicle. His radiator also started leaking.

Truck driver Mar Cabrera admitted there is no right turn on the intersection but decided to make the turn anyway since there were only few vehicles passing by. He said he was also surprised by the collision.

Both drivers denied that they were speeding when the accident happened.

The Makati Traffic Police is already investigating the incident. – from a report by Francis Faulve, ABS-CBN News
