According to a report from GMA News, a Filipina beauty queen (Binibining Pilipinas) titleholder was killed with two other companions after their car collided with a passenger bus in a Philippine province.

Reigning Bb. Pilipinas Melody Gersbach, her driver Santos Ramos and her manager Alvin Orense died on the spot after their car crashed on a Guevarra bus at Barangay Pawili in Bula town at past 11 a.m. Saturday.

Camarines Sur provincial police director Col. Jonathan Ablang said in the report that Gersbach’s car came from Legazpi City in Albay and was heading to Naga City in Camarines Sur for a local beauty pageant when it figured in the accident.

Gersbach last competed in the Miss International pageant in China last November, where she secured a spot in the semi-finals.

Patricia Fernandez, Bb. Pilipinas-International 2008, crowned Melody Gersbach as her successor to represent Philippines to the Miss International 2009 pageant in Macau, People's Republic of China.

Binibining Pilipinas is the annual beauty pageant in the Philippines. The grand coronation night takes place at the Araneta Coliseum, and broadcast by GMA Network and GMA's international channel, GMA Pinoy TV. Last year only 23 ladies competed for the 3 major crowns due to the disqualification of one candidate.
