In a report by radio DZMM, initial investigation showed that the jeep was travelling Timog Avenue en route to EDSA when the truck blindsided it coming from Scout Tobias.

Due to the impact, the jeepney turned on its side and the victim, Jocelyn Flores, was thrown off from the vehicle and was pinned to death.

Flores was supposedly on her way to her office, the report added.

The truck and jeepney drivers claimed that it was an accident and that they were not speeding.

Authorities arrested the drivers and may face reckless imprudence resulting in homicide and multiple injuries.

Investigation is still ongoing.
