Motorcycle rider injured in accident in Ermita

A motorcycle rider was injured after accidentally hitting the back of a truck in Ermita, Manila on Friday morning, Dec. 15.

The victim, who suffered from chest pain as a result of the accident, was not named by the Manila Police District (MPD), Ermita Police Station (PS-5).

The accident occurred around 11:50 a.m. on Finance Road, corner of Taft Avenue in Ermita, causing heavy traffic in the area.

According to initial police investigation, the truck driver claimed that his vehicle lost its brakes, prompting him to ram it into the center island to avoid hitting another motorist.

Unfortunately, the motorcycle behind the truck was unable to brake in time, resulting in the collision.

Despite sustaining injuries to his chest, the motorcycle driver refused to be taken to the hospital and did not file a case, describing the incident as a “self-accident.”

The truck involved in the accident was promptly towed by the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB).
