Subject : Info Bulletin re Vehicular Accident Involving a Xavier School and a Malayan High School Bus Service
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.
