Woman killed after being hit by van


A 48-year-old Filipino died after being hit by a van early yesterday morning in Dandan.

The Department of Public Safety reported that at about 5:20am yesterday, police responded to an auto-pedestrian accident along Chalan Msgr. Guerrero in Dandan. The accident occurred on the eastbound lane in front of the Twin’s Super Market.

The victim, a Filipina, age 48, sustained several severe injuries and was brought to Commonwealth Health Center emergency room for treatment. She was pronounced dead by an attending doctor at 5:35am.

The driver of a 2016 white Honda Odyssey was heading east on the outer lane driving at a speed of approximately 35 to 40 miles per hour when the victim entered the street.

The driver said he did not see the victim who was not in a designated crosswalk until a passenger in the car he was driving yelled “people!”

By the time he reacted, it was too late as his car already collided with the victim.

The accident is still under investigation and investigating officers have ruled out alcohol as a determining factor in the case.
