A PASSENGER died while 11 others were injured, one in critical condition, after the bus they were riding figured in a road accident on Km. 73 at Sitio Langub in Barangay Epol in Marilog District, Davao City.
The incident happened around 6 a.m. while the bus was on its way to Davao City from Cagayan de Oro City.
The bus, operated by Rural Transit Bus, was driven by one Dennis Esguerra who surrendered to Chief Insp. Roberto Espina, Marilog police chief, immediately after the incident.
Based on initial investigation, the bus was travelling along the Davao-Bukidnon national highway when it fell into a deep canal on the roadside.
Sun.Star Davao Superbalita tried to get comments from Rural Transit’s sister company, Bachelor Express, but to no avail. The one who answered the phone refused to comment since they are yet to receive report about the incident.
Espina could also not be reached for comment.
