First District Provincial Board Member Ricky Masamayor figured in a vehicular accident in Maribojoc on Thursday afternoon.
Masamayor’s Toyota Fortuner accidentally rammed a Nissan Urvan commuter van from behind along a national road in Barangay Punta Cruz, said PO2 Alan Bertucio of the Maribojoc police.
No one was injured during the incident, although Masamayor’s airbag deployed.
Both vehicles reportedly sustained significant damages.
According to Bertucio, both Masamayor’s sports utility vehicle and the van were heading towards Loon when the latter suddenly stopped to pick up a passenger.
Masamayor who was trailing the van was reportedly caught off guard causing him to slam towards the vehicle’s rear end.
Bertucio identified the van’s driver as Edgardo Flores, a resident of Talibon.
Both Masamayor and Flores came into an agreement and settled the incident at the Maribojoc Police Station. (AD)
