Ortega said Baker along with other passengers was aboard a mini bus driven by Ronnei Patria, 40, traveling to Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay coming from Liloy, Zamboanga del Norte.

Patria lost control of the steering wheel after the bus had a mechanical problem causing the vehicle to fall into a roadside ditch, he said.

All of the other passengers including the driver, except Baker, were unharmed, he said. (Bong Garcia)
