MANILA - ABS-CBN reporter Kori Quintos was brought to the emergency room of the Manila East Medical Center early Tuesday morning after their news vehicle figured in an accident in Taytay, Rizal.

Quintos did not show any external injuries but her head hurt and was vomiting after the accident. She has been placed under close medical observation.

Quintos, her cameraman, and driver were on their way back to ABS-CBN in Quezon City when they were caught by surprise by a concrete barrier in the middle of the road.

Their crew cab hit the concrete barrier.

Members of a family on another car also suffered a similar accident in the area and are being treated in the same hospital.

Motorists are urging the Taytay local government to either remove the road barriers or place reflectorized paints on them so that they can be seen better, particularly at night. - report from Glen Carlos, dzMM
