A couple died while their four children were seriously injured after a wayward cargo truck rammed their house pushing it off into a 30 meter deep ravine in Bagabag Town. The provincial police told that a 10 wheeler truck ran smack into a house, instantly kill the couple when their house together with the truck fell into the ravine. The truck was negotiating a steep downward curve on a road in the town’s Tapaya village when the driver suddenly lost control of the vehicle. The report indicated that the couple’s children were sleeping in rooms separate from the couple when the incident happened. The children were rushed to the hospital a few kilometers from the accident site but their conditions were unstable due to severe injuries. The houses in some of Nueva Viscaya’s mountain villages are built along roads on mountainsides making them vulnerable to such road incidents. The truck driver who was unharmed surrendered to authorities a few hours after the accident.
