Three people died while 26 were hurt after a bus allegedly lost its brake and hit multiple vehicles along a road in Balanga, Bataan, on Wednesday evening, January 25.

Based on the authorities' initial investigation, the passenger bus was from Pampanga and it was on its way to Olongapo City when it rammed a parked motorcycle, two tricycle units, and an L300 van before colliding with a passenger jeepney in the opposite lane.

The jeepney was reportedly en route to Bataan from Olongapo.

Twenty-nine people were taken to the James Gordon Memorial Hospital in Olongapo City, Zambales, and Dinalupihan District Hospital.

However, three victims were declared dead on arrival. They were identified as Camille Isidro, 25, Renzey Costales, 20, and one unidentified male.

The 54-year-old bus driver, identified as Edwin Sandoval, is facing charges for reckless imprudence resulting in multiple homicides, multiple physical injuries, and damage to properties.
