EJ Falcon got involved in a car accident last March 7, he was on his way to a taping in Laguna, which Fashion Pulis reported.
According to Raffy Reyes, a councilor in Tanay Rizal, his car got hit by a van giving damage to his car window, door, and side mirror.
Raffy said that after the accident, a couple riding a motorcycle helped him by following the said van who allegedly ran away after the collision.
According to ABS-CBN, when they reached the checkpoint they found out that the van was owned by Kapamilya actor EJ Falcon.
EJ said that he was sleeping during the accident, "Version naman ng driver ko, pagbaba niya ng van ko, natakot siya kasi first time mangyari. May sumigaw, natakot siya."
The actor apologized for what happened and has already coordinated with Raffy.
However, some netizens find his excuse very lame saying it's impossible that he didn't wake up from that kind of strong impact.
Read some of the comments from netizens below:
"So hindi siya nagising pagkatapos nabangga ng driver niya ang kotse? I’m sure dahil sa impact nagising siya unless na unconscious siya, bakit hindi niya pinahinto driver niya para balikan ang owner ng car?"
"so ganyan kagrabe ung other car, walang gisingan si ejay?? aba, magaling"
"Aba matindi. Sa damage pa lang kita ng malakas impact, di kayo magigising? And iba un sa lindol unless intensity 6+ pa yan. Kashungahan nyo."
"Luh! D ka nagising sa lagay ng nabangga ng driver mo?"
"For more of this story, log on to www.PALUSOT. com! Kumita na yan hoi! Don’t us, Mr. Falcon!"
"Owner of the vehicle and the driver are responsible for the accident, Ejay. Just so you know lang in case you made an excuse na "tulog" ka talaga during the banggaan na you didn't wake up sa untog mismo."
"Humingi ng paumanhin... Bakit parang wala lang sa kanila? Hintayin pa ba na may mamatay? Hay, I have no forgiveness for people who endanger other people's lives."
"hmm.. deep sleep ata peg ng lolo nio kumbat d sha ngcng? haha.. kaloka. kawawa naman ung binangga andaming damage. konting keme nlng total wreck na ung peg eh"
"Palusot lang yung tulog siya nung mangyari ang aksidente. Baka talagang balak takbuhan ang naka-bang-gaan at ang driver ang ginawang fall guy."
"lame excuse paka imposible di sya nagising heller laki ng bangga wagn kyo palusot dyan. managot kyo sa batas mali na nga kinakampihan nyo pa sana lang di din kyo makaranas ng bangga"
"Mga faneys talaga, nagkamali na nga yung tao, kinakampihan pa. Dami pang excuses. Tsk tsk tsk"
"Kahit tulog...magigising kung ganyan yung nangyari sa kotse. He’s obviously irresponsible"
"Aysus yung mga faneys pinagtatanggol pa siya. Malinaw pa sa alas 4 na kung hindi siya nahuli, tatakasan na lang niya yan. Nabuking kaya nag sorry at papaayos na lang daw niya."
Meanwhile, some netizens came to his defense saying that he took full responsibility of the accident by apologizing and shouldering the damage cost.
Read their comments below:
"I don think he intended to ran away from his responsibility. He is a public figure and celebrity, he wont do anything na makakasira sa pangalan nya. And may pera naman sya pampaayos ng sasakyan or pampaospital if ever may nasaktan, so bkit sya tatakas kung alam nya ang totoong nangyari"
"Baka tulog po kaya di nagising. May mga tao ksi na parang mantika matulog. Siguro naramdaman nya ung impact pero di nya naisip na ganon na pala ang damage. Alam mo ung feeling na half awake half asleep. Feeling mo nanaginip ka pero totoo na pala"
"Malay nga natin tulog.Pano na lang kung naka head set pa nakikinig ng music in full blast.Lol ganoon kasi ako eh."
"He took full responsibility of the accident. He even apologized for what happened. Ejay is a good man. He was raised by his parents well.I dont think kakayanin ng konsensya nya na hayaan na lang ung agrabyado"
"naniniwala ako sayo ejay alam ko ndi mo kayang takbuhan yung mga ganong pangyayari...yung iba nman jan wagas makabash nagsorry na nga diba kasi wala nman nasaktan...atsaka maayos nman yan nila sa legal na proseso meron nman tayong batas para jan...THANK YOU GOD OKAY ANG LAHAT LALO NA PO SI EJAY"
