Actress Kristine Hermosa has offered to help the family of the 16-year-old boy who was killed in a fatal accident Sunday afternoon, October 7, in Cavite. The actress, though, is still in a state of shock over the incident, according to the statement issued by her home network, ABS-CBN.
According to a report by gmanews.tv, Kristine had just left her shoot and she was headed to Quezon City for another appointment when two people on board a red motorcycle tried to overtake their vehicle and cut into the lane, thereby causing the accident.
"It is a most unfortunate incident and Ms. Hermosa and her family are doing everything possible to extend assistance to the families of the motorists. We wish to reiterate that Ms. Hermosa was not behind the wheel when the accident happened," the statement said.
Based on the information given by Senior Superitendent Fidel Posadas of the Cavite Provincial Police Office, the incident took place Sunday afternoon on Governor's Drive in Garita B Village, Maragondon, Cavite at around 1:35 p.m.
The lone fatality in the incident, earlier identified as "Junior," died immediately. The backrider of the motorcycle, Maricel de Guzman, 18, continues to receive treatment at the Naic Hospital. The driver of Kristine's 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe was identified as Francisco Manarang, 32.
Posadas said that "Junior" was driving the motorcycle but he doubts that the boy, being a minor, had a valid license.
