Bus crash kills at least 19, injures more than a dozen: police

At least 19 passengers were killed and more than a dozen injured when a commuter bus crashed into a ravine in Occidental Mindoro on Tuesday evening, police said.
The bus hit a bridge railing and crashed into a 15-meter (50-feet) deep cliff a police report sent to Provincial Director Romy Estepa in Camp Winston Sibley Ebersole in San Jose town said Wednesday.
Earlier radio reports quoted probers saying the driver had apparently lost control of the vehicle while traversing the Patrick Bridge.
The Dimple Star Bus with Number Plate TYU 708 was driven by a certain Arno Panganiban, who was among those dead on the spot along with the bus conductor, said the report by Police Chief Insp. Jeny Popa Magan.
Initial investigation showed the bus was travelling northward from San Jose town to Abra De Ilog, and, “upon reaching the downward portion of the highway, near a bridge (Patrick Bridge), the vehicle allegedly lost control, as a result it fell down into a cliff (around 15 to 20 meters).”


The bus hit a bridge railing and crashed into a 15-metre (50-feet) deep cliff in the province of Occidental Mindoro, provincial police director Senior Superintendent Romie Estepa told DZMM radio station on Wednesday.
“The driver lost control of the vehicle. We have yet to know if this is human or technical error,” Estepa said.
The Philippines is notorious for its lax regulation on public transportation and poorly maintained roads.
