LIGAO CITY—Four persons, three of whom were students taking online classes, were injured after a ten-wheel truck rammed on Tuesday (Oct. 6) the computer shop where they were in along the Maharlika Highway in this city, a police report said.

The truck was being driven by Severo Sadia, of Naga City, and on board was the driver’s companion, Jero Abraham, 18.

Sadia told police that the truck lost its brakes and headed straight into the computer shop.

Three of the injured were taken to a hospital for minor injuries. Dela Cruz was pinned on the ground by the truck and brought to Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital, the region’s biggest.
