- A jeepney was crossing the intersection of EDSA Timog
- The driver did it beating the red light, which resulted to a yellow bus smacking it right on the middle
- A CCTV captured the incident, showing how the jeepney turned over due to the impact
Beating the red light is a strict no-no, which is why drivers are always advised not to do it.
KAMI saw that one driver, however, didn't adhere to this traffic rule as it didn't mind the red light at EDSA.
When the blue jeepney crossed the EDSA-Timog intersection, the yellow bus coming from its right inadvertently slammed onto it.
As per the video uploaded by Philippines CCTV & Dash Cam Spotted, the full force of the bus hit the jeepney right in the middle, which sent it turning on its side.
Some passengers were thrown out of the jeepney and there were many who got hurt.
Other passengers tried to get out of the jeepney through its windows.
Netizens reacted and blamed the negligence of the jeepney driver in beating the red light.
According to the driver, "inabot siya ng red light habang nasa gitna ng EDSA-Timog intersection East Ave. - Timog."
Here are some comments of netizens:
Karamihan Ng driver Ng jeep ganyan! Wala pakialam sa ibang motorista bsta Yung gusto Lang nila nasusunod. Mga ...... !!!
Ano kaya hinahabol ng jeep? Pasahero?? Isa ito sa dahilan kaya gusto iPhase out ang jeepneys, para di na kailangan maghabol ng pasahero.. ikulong yang driver ng jeep na yan.
Beating the red light. Pag green ayaw tumakbo. Pag red i bbeat and red light. Pag gabi ayaw mag sindi ng Headlight. Gago talaga. Pati pasahero mo idadamay mo sa kagaguhan nyong mga jeep. Dapat sya magpagamot ng mga pasahero nya.
