At least 21 persons have died in a skyway accident near Manila, Philippines, according to an Inquisitr report on Monday. The accident also resulted in another 20 persons being injured.
The accident occurred when a bus, loaded with passengers, veered from the Manila Skyway which is an elevated highway. The bus hit a van, and the driver of the van was killed on impact according to the report, while the bus driver – Carmelo Calascas - is still in critical condition in a hospital located in Paranaque. He will be given drug and alcohol testing.
