Update: the vehicle have been separated. The occupants of the dump truck are fine. The driver of planet action legs were severely crushed. One of the foreigners in the back had a gash in his forehead the other eight suffered minor injuries. As of this morning the dump truck is still in the same place. the planet action vehicle has been removed to the side off the road. looking at the damage of the front of the planet action vehicle, i dont know how in the hell he survived in the crash. it took the neighbors about an hour to pry him out of the vehicle with large steel bars.

sounds like no one was travelling on the roof...glad to hear no one was killed...although based on your news, the drivers life is likely still in danger...

I'm glad to hear that the accident wasn't as serious as it looked at first. I hope that the driver makes a speedy recovery.

Same here. Nowhere is safe on roads here with no driving tests. Five on bike, baby on the gas tank. Where I live the tricycads are a damn menace with the wrong side of the road tactics. Pull out without looking means, "I didn't see you so it's your fault'. Seems to be favorite here.

No foreigner who is hurt here is ever going to collect - with the possible exception of maybe an airline.  When a Bachelor Bus hit me [ in Davao its a huge company]  the companies attorneys  told me that Bachelor had no insurance and that the driver would have to pay .

Came across this in Panay.  You can almost make out the shape of the tricycle driver that went through the front.  His fault of course.........

I was running and got hit by a pinoy and his wife on a scooter.  His insurance paid.  The pedestrian is never at fault.

NOT good. No fire rescue rig anywhere. The driver spent his "Golden Hour" watching villagers attack the vehicle with rebars. https://en.wikipedia...hour_(medicine)

Pretty much the same as in the US.

You suppose to have control of the forward momentum of your vehicle.

This is the PH foreigners don't get settlements very often.  About the only thing that can happen to you where you might get some payment is if you are hit as a pedestrian.  Pedestrians always have the right of way, even foreign ones.

 

However, if you are the driver it is your fault.  Circumstances don't really matter,  it's still your fault.  Just the way it is here.  The legal system is so broken and so corrupt you would be wasting your money to go to Court over an accident.  This is why guys with black motorcycle helmets riding motorcycles are so much in demand in the PH.
