MANILA - Four people were hurt in an accident involving a passenger bus and a trailer truck along North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) near Balagtas, Bulacan on Tuesday afternoon.

The victims sustained minor injuries and refused to be brought to a hospital.

The collision caused heavy traffic in NLEX since a lot of motorists are on their way to different provinces for the Holy Week break.

As of posting, according to Cathy del Mundo of NLEX Traffic Control Office, the stalled 18-wheeler truck and the bus were being removed from the accident site.

As of 6 p.m., only the two outer most lanes near the accident site were passable.

The accident also caused a four-kilometer long queue of vehicles from Bocaue Interchange to the site of the accident.

Motorists coming from Manila can expect heavy traffic upon entering NLEX. -- report from Robert Mano, DZMM
