Thirty-one people were injured when the passenger bus they were riding fall into a ravine in General Luna, Quezon, Wednesday afternoon.

Those injured, including bus driver Ricardo Mingcay and his conductor, were brought to the Bondoc Peninsula District Hospital in Catanauan, PO2 Archival Almonte, investigator at the General Luna Police, said.

The incident occurred around 4:20 p.m. while Mingcay was driving the RR bus (DWX-972) along the Bondoc Peninsula National Highway in Brgy. Bacong Ilaya.

Mingcay allegedly lost control when a suspension spring at the bus’ front broke, causing the vehicle to fall into the 10-feet ravine.

Mingcay was placed under arrest at the hospital, Almonte said. (John Roson)
