Elderly woman dies, 27 hurt in NorCot hi-way mishap


ALEOSAN, North Cotabato: A 75-year-old woman was killed while 27 others were wounded when a speeding Weena bus rammed a farm tractor with a trailer full of passengers before hitting a big mango tree in a highway here Friday.

Police are yet to determine the identity of the old woman, who was among the passengers of a tractor-drawn trailer traveling along the highway Friday morning.

The woman, who was pinned to death, has no identification cards or residence certificate that could identify her.

The Aleosan PNP said the Weena bus, also loaded with passengers was heading for Davao from Cotabato City when it collided head on with the tractor, supposedly not allowed to travel along the national highway.

Passengers of the bus also suffered minor bruises after they were pushed on seats in front of them.

The Weena Bus, now operated by Bachelor Express, vows to extend aid to the relatives of the fatality and the wounded passengers. PNA
