Fifteen people died in bus crash in barangay Lutopan, Toledo City, Cebu province

Cebu Bus Accident

cebu bus crash













Yet another bus crash on Cebu island. I reduced my articles on the incidents purely because there seem to be an excessive amount of crashes which are literally happening daily where multiple people die. But the crash in Toledo City death rate was so high I have write about it in the hope that some officials will sort these buses out as the pattern of accidents all seem to relate to brake failures.

Getting back to this incident 15 people died and another 48 were injured when a bus ran into a house in barangay Lutopan, Toledo City, Cebu province at around 5 p.m. the Corominas bus came from Cebu city heading to Tuburan Cebu Province. Initial reports in the area from eye witnesses have said that it appeared the bus lost its brakes and then ran into the house. One of the walls on the house was damaged although all inhabitants of the home were uninjured all fatalities from the accident were passengers travelling on the bus. The driver of the bus immediately handed himself over to police after the incident.

    Hi Lorna I have the same issue with the media here in the Philippines when they are giving very graphic imagery on live television no doubt ahead of families actually finding out about loved ones deaths. Not sure why its done in a way that shows in such ways like your saying with the loss of a head or other parts.. people deserve dignity and a thought of respect. The bodies should always remain covered as the graphic nature is not relevant to media coverage. It should be outlawed.

    I am from that area now living in Minnesota USA. I cried when I saw the head was off the body. They should not post this kind of pictures. They should RESPECT the DEAD and the family of the family of those unfortunate who lost their lives. I am crying and praying that thier family will be strong and our LORD GOD ALMIGHTY will guide them. PLEASE whoever have the picture of dicapetated head PLEASE DO NOT POST IT> REMOVE IT. Malooy sab mo sa familya oy. PALIHUG lang intawon. Lorna Selgas Tall

      Im the same won’t go near the buses. I noticed something very odd a few weeks back where a bus had worn tyres so they had actually fixed another tyres treads to the old tyres over the top literally wrapping a new tread over the old tyre. Another thing I find bizarre is how they state “new bus” on several of these accidents yet the buses are obviously 1980s – 90s at best.. The road safety will never change here though with the current system purely because people don’t care. An accident sticks in peoples minds for 24hrs then everything goes back to normal.
