MANILA, Philippines – A driver was ran over by his own jeepney on Saturday night in Baguio City.

Witnesses said the driver Adalberto Angupa was fixing the transmission under his jeepney when his vehicle started to move because the wedge that he used was small.

“Naalis 'yung kalso ng sasakyan niya kaya bumaba 'yung jeep... Nadaganan 'yung driver kaya nahulog 'yung sasakyan niya,” said witness Elsie Caoili.

Residents from Barangay Engineer's Hill instantly came to the rescue of Angupa, whose legs were badly injured.

Report said Angupa was immediately brought to the Hospital of Sacred Heart after the incident. – from a report by Angelyn Valencia, ABS-CBN News Northern Luzon
