4 fall injured in hit-and-run

Tarlac City – – Walang konsiyensiya.
This was the collective complaint of 4 victims of a hit-and-run in Barangay San Miguel who were hospitalized after their tricycle was sideswiped by a speeding black SUV last November 20, around 5:50 in the afternoon.
Their tricycle turned turtle when it was bumped by the speeding SUV who overtook them on the right side of the road.
The incident happened along the road fronting the Microtel Hotel, around 200 meters from the Police Community Precinct, but no policeman responded.
The victims were sisters Nelylane Manzano and Nelma Serafica, their mother Elenia Baccay and tricycle driver-owner Francisco Villar, all from Barangay Lomboy, Lapaz.
Manzano, Zerafica and Baccay were brought at the Central Luzon Doctors’ Hospital while Villar brought himself at the Lapaz District Hospital where he was treated with fractured leg and wounds in several parts of his body.
According to Serafica, they just came from Camp Servillano Aquino and were on the way home to Lapaz when the speeding black SUV who was overtaking them on the right side hit the rear of the tricycle side car.
As a result, their vehicle turned turtle and Manzano, who was seated on the driver’s back ride, was thrown out several meters.
Manzano was severely injured and stayed at the CLDH for 11 days. The expenses of the 3 was more than P140,000.
Villar, the trike driver, suffered a broken leg and fingers and spent more than P50,000.
“Walang konsiyesiya ang driver ng SUV. Hindi kami tinigilan kahit nakitang niyang bumaliktad ang sasakyan namin. Huwag sana siyang ma-karma at sana tulungan niya kami sa aming nagastos sa hospital”, Serafica said.
Serafica also lamented that no policeman came to investigate the incident./Nelson Bolos
