A devastating accident in Antipas, North Cotabato claimed the lives of at least 14 people just prior to 1 p.m. on Monday, March 25. The unfortunate event unfolded when a dump truck, laden with gravel and sand, lost control and struck a passenger van, causing the van to ignite.
An additional three individuals were reported to have been injured in this tragic event. The van was making its way to Kidapawan City, and the dump truck was on its way to Antipas at the time. The accident took place roughly 10 kilometers from the town's main hub.
Most of the victims, who were from Antipas, sadly died in the blaze. Some were thrown from the van due to the collision and were found scattered on the roadway.


As of 6:10 p.m. on Monday, municipal law enforcement was still gathering information about the accident and had not yet confirmed if there were any survivors, as reported by Tupas. The passenger van, which had just left the Antipas town terminal and was en route to Kidapawan City, the capital of Cotabato province, was hit by a dump truck coming from the opposite direction on the steep road in Barangay Luhong, according to Tupas.

The accident occurred approximately 10 kilometers from the town's bus terminal, as stated by Tupas. The dump truck was driven by Nasiad, who had two other people with him: his helper, 27-year-old Wilmark Josil Panoy, and a passenger named Gregorio Wallace CasiΓ±o. The police have not yet reported on the status of these individuals, whether they were injured or remained unharmed.
