A kid who threw a stone at an EDSA carousel bus died following a vehicular accident in Quezon City on Thursday morning.
According to the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (I-ACT), some witnesses said that the still unidentified kid allegedly hurled a rock at an oncoming bus between the Santolan and Ortigas stations and then tried to flee the area by jumping over the center island.
The driver of the bus allegedly tried to stop the vehicle following the incident but unfortunately hit the kid who was trying to escape the scene. The victim died on the spot.
“Sa ngayo’y kasama at nakikipagtulungan sa mga otoridad ang driver ng nasabing bus na hindi tumakbo sa naturang pinangyarihan ng aksidente. Wala namang nai-ulat na iba pang nasaktan sa aksidente,” I-ACT said in a social media post.
