MANILA, Philippines – A truck collided into a taxi along the southbound lane of the Domestic Road in Pasay City on Sunday.

Taxi driver Marcelo Panugan said he was from Taguig City on his way to Sucat when the truck suddenly hit the passenger side of his car.

"Susunduin ko na sana ang anak ko eh nagulat na lang ako lumagabog. Bigla na akong binangga sa passenger seat," he said.

However, truck driver Eddy Samudio blamed Panugan, whom he accused of making a U-turn without signal.

“Wala pa man siyang signal dire-diretso lang siya kaya ganoon ang nangyari. Ang problema hindi na nakayanan ng break kasi hindi ko akalain na biglang liliko diyan," Samudio said.

No one was badly hurt but Panugan is complaining of pain in the left side of his body because of the collision.

The Pasay City Traffic Sector is now investigating the incident.
