Bus Accident in Ayala Ave, Makati City

PHILIPPINES--- Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will probe on an accident involving Guevarra bus line that caused Bb. Pilipinas International Melody Gersbach’s death.

Effective today, LTFRB Chairman Dante Lantin ordered the month-long suspension of Guevarra bus line’s franchise.

The agency also ordered a road worthiness inspection on the company’s buses.

According to initial reports, the bus had some “mechanical problems” that led the driver into an uncontrollable situation. Thus, the bus collided with the car boarded by the victims on the opposite route that led to the unfortunate death of the beauty queen and her other 2 companies.

The probe is set to begin next week and the owners of Guevarra bus line should face possible charges.
