Truck loaded with sugarcane
A 10-wheeler truck loaded with 28 tons of sugarcane fell on its right side and hit a house by the national highway in Barangay Mabuhay of Santa Catalina town, in Negros Oriental Wednesday afternoon.
Some witnesses said the truck was travelling too fast and when it reached a curb on the highway, it fell on its side.
The truck driver, identified as Antonio Burnes, with his assistant Jemson Villarosa, both of Bayawan City, in the province escaped unharmed. The driver admitted that sleep caught up with him while he was driving and said it was a “human error”. But he denied being under the influence of hard liquor.
