- A video of an SUV colliding with a tricycle went viral
- One of the passengers of the tricycle fell to the ground during the collision
- Netizens are divided on who committed a mistake in the incident
A video of an SUV colliding with a tricycle which causes the passenger to fall off the latter vehicle had gone viral, with netizens divided on which driver was at fault in the accident.
The video shows the SUV trailing a tricycle which was moving in the middle of the road. The SUV driver wanted to overtake the trike but it cannot do so on the left side since he would have to counter flow by doing that.
Instead, the SUV driver decided to overtake the tricycle on the left side of the lane. But as the SUV tried to drive past the tricycle, the latter vehicle suddenly went to the right side of the lane which resulted in the collision between the two.
To make matters worse, a passenger riding behind the tricycle driver fell off the vehicle during the collision, possible sustaining some injuries in the process.
The online community was divided on who is really responsible for the traffic accident.
“Dapat naman kasi yung traysikel dapat bumabagtas sa tabi ng bangketa di sa gitna ng kalsada!” a netizen said.
(The tricycle should have been on the side of the road and not in the middle!)
Other netizens defended the tricycle driver, saying that the SUV was at fault.
“Hinde yan kasalanan ng tricycle… Paalala po ng LTO sa seminar wag ka mag overtake sa right side at requiered po tlga ng LTO na sa left side ka mag overtake,” an online user responded.
(That is not the fault of the tricycle driver. The LTO reminds during their seminars that you should not overtake on the right sight. The LTO requires drivers to overtake on the left side.)
