———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Early yesterday morning, Xavier School Security Coordinator Mr. Gerry Castañeda, received a call from one of our accredited bus service operators. He reported that one of his school service vehicles, collided with a Malayan High School van at the corner of Speaker Perez and N. Roxas Street in Quezon City.

Among the injured were 2 Xavier Grade 2 students, a Grade 4 and a Grade 7 student, a parent/mother of one of the Grade 2 boys and an ICA student. They sustained cuts, bruises and contusions and were initially brought to the Sta. Teresita General Hospital for treatment, and later transferred to Chinese General Hospital for further tests.

After X-rays and CT scans were taken and results were clear/negative, four of the Xavier students, the parent/mother, and the ICA student were released and cleared to go home. As of late yesterday afternoon, only our Grade 7 boy remains confined for a repeat X-ray after he complained of pain in his lower back.

To date, police authorities are still investigating the incident.

    I am glad that the riders have been released n in good state but I feel sorry for the Gr7 boy that’s complaining of pain in his lower neck. He will carry that pain forever. It’s so sad that this bus driver was driving too fast as CCTV footage showed. He should always be aware that he is holding the precious lives of young kids in his hands and should always drive carefully. The parent in the school bus should warn the driver when he is going too fast, very dangerous. I think Xavier should look into this matter because should there be a casualty, how painful naman for the family.

    Hello, I am a Xavier alumni batch 1996 and a father of a grade one student. We also avail of school service for my son. I think the accredited school service should also put their name on top of the current school they service on their vans, because it looks like they carry the name of the school they service if the school’s name is the only one there. I also think the operator should be punished by a suspension for the 1st event and a cancellation on the accreditation on the 2nd for lack of training and supervision of life threatening potentials of their drivers. It is common sense that the drivers went on a racing and ego expedition to a level signified by the damages on their vehicles and people inside. They would have probably used their guns if they had. The drivers involved should have their licenses revoked permanently. We should be strict on important issues to avoid these instances that are very crucial. The Philippines is known for being to lenient that’s why progress is very slow.
