About 47 people on their way home from a wedding were injured when the Canter truck they were riding fell on its side in Purok Mabuhay, Barangay Pandanon in Don Salvador Benedicto town, Negros Occidental, at about 5:45 p.m. yesterday.

Inspector Celjun Nemenio, the town’s police chief, said Canter truck was driven by Jolibert Gonzales, 50, who was being investigated by the DSB police last night.

Gonzales told the DAILY STAR he was driving downhill when he shifted gears and stepped on the brakes that malfunctioned, causing him to hit the cement barrier on the side of the road to prevent the vehicle from falling down a cliff.moremoremore
