Bus Crash

Sablan, Benguet - A passenger bus plummeted on a steep cliff leaving 40 people dead. The bus, going to Benguet proper lost its breaks. The rescue efforts proved to be even harder because it was a very deep cliff and most of the passengers were crushed and stuck between the metal seats of the bus.

While the families of those who perished are grieving, it seems that no one is prepared to take responsibility for the accident. The owner of the bus franchise has not been identified and there are apparently no more survivors.
