ABS-CBN News reported that the van suddenly slowed while cruising along the Anao, Tarlac stretch of TPLEX, causing the truck behind it to slam the van’s rear.

All of the victims were seated at the rear of the van, which turned to its side as a result of the impact.

The passengers from Taguig were en route to Baguio for a vacation.

The eight injured, including the van’s driver, were rushed to hospitals in Rosales, Pangasinan.

Police quoted by ABS-CBN News said the truck driver was neither sleepy nor intoxicated.
