Three people were reported killed in a multiple-vehicle accident in a portion of the Subic – Clark – Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) in Mabalacat, Pampanga on Wednesday, according to an official of the North Luzon Expressway Corp. (NLEX).
Robin Ignacio, NLEX-SCTEX traffic operations manager, said the accident took place along the SCTEX northbound lane at around 12:57 p.m. after a pickup truck veered sharply to the opposite lanes, ramming through the barrier and slamming into three other vehicles.
Ignacio said the wayward pickup collided with another truck, a Toyota sedan, and a passenger bus.
Ignacio said the three passengers of the Toyota died, while the driver was injured.
He added that NLEX traffic personnel were immediately on site to assist the motorists and restore normal the traffic flow.
