A passenger bus fell off a bridge when it hit the railing along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) on Thursday morning.
KAMI learned that at least 5 passengers sustained minor injuries following the accident.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, about 7 vehicles were involved in the incident. According to NLEX traffic control room, among the involved were two trucks.
"Ang involved ay bus at dalawang truck," NLEX traffic and safety manager Robin Ignacio said.
“Medyo sumampa po sa parapet, medyo mababaw po doon kaya nakatukod lang po yung unahan niya,” he added.
The accident caused heavy traffic which led NLEX management to implement a counter-flow scheme.
As reported by the Inquirer, Ignacio noted that the traffic build-up was about 3 kilometers long.
