2 die, 2 hurt as wayward dump truck sets ablaze gasoline station in Valenzuela City


Two people died while another two were seriously injured after a speeding dump truck smashes into and sets ablaze the Shell gasoline station in Barangay Karuhatan, Valenzuela City early Tuesday morning.

FO3 Walter Fermalino, case-investigator, said the dump truck (UMB-943) driven by Ramon Gabayan was heading towards Bulacan when the accident took place.

He said the dump truck hit the fuel dispenser with the hand-held pump at the time being attended by gasoline boy Jonathan Mafuel who was killed on impact.

The impact ignited a fire, with the blaze killing Gabayan who was trapped in the burning dump truck.

Initial reports said those injured were Tomas Martin and Raymond Pulay, both undergoing treatment at the Valenzuela City General Hospital. PNA
