A 52-year-old woman and her three-year-old grandson were killed after both were rammed by a private sports utility vehicle (SUV) as they were about to board a bus in Carmen town on Saturday afternoon.
The fatalities, identified as Narisa Oque, 52, and her grandson, were smashed between a Kia Sportage and a bus owned by the Southern Star Bus Company, Inc., said PO2 Jason Rebellas of the Carmen Police Station.
According to Rebellas, the driver of the SUV, Michael Baguhin, 34, who was parked behind the Southern Star bus intended to go on reverse but instead sped forward towards the Oques as he was unable to shift the knob to the right gear.
Both victims were still rushed to a hospital in Carmen but were declared dead on arrival.
Meanwhile, Baguhin surrendered before the Carmen Police Station while a criminal complaint is set to be filed against him in court on Monday.
Police said that three other passengers were injured during the accident but were in safe condition.
The victims, identified as Prima Decasa, 50 of Batuan, Lucila Samuya of Dagohoy and Marcelina Flores of Carmen, sustained scratches in their bodies. (AD)
