The SUV driver, Jose San Vicente, has not attended the LTO hearings, and has only showed himself to the PNP recently.
His mother and father accompanied him to Camp Crame, and his mother said that it was just an accident and that his son is "mabait" and "responsable."
The viral incident, where a security guard who was directing traffic was ran over by a RAV-4, happened in Mandaluyong. A video captured the whole incident and it has gone viral on social media.
PLTGen. Vicente Dupa Danao, Jr., during the press conference, stated that the SUV driver might have been scared of the firearm of the security guard. He then said that it must be the reason why he ran away instead of helping the security guard. Danao then said that it was a very unfortunate incident that an SUV ran over a security guard. "Siguro out of confusedness medyo na-rattle po yung driver," he further added.
In a related story, it was revealed that the security guard who was run over by an SUV in Mandaluyong has a sick mother whom he is still looking after. This was revealed by one of his co-workers, Chris Soriano, who also said that he is also the "padre de pamilya." According to Soriano, the mother of the security guard has not yet been informed about the condition of his son, for fears that she might not be able to bear it. The agency of the guard has also signified that they will help with the expenses of the elderly mother while her son is still in the hospital.
