Quising and all of his unidentified passengers were rushed to the Abra Provincial Hospital at the provincial capital of Benguet, roughly four hours away from the site of mishap.
The driver did not reach the hospital alive. Four of the victims were confined at the hospital while the remaining passengers were sent home after treatment. – Artemio Dumlao
