Joseph Bitangcol is now in stable condition after figuring in a vehicular accident on his way to Antipolo City this morning, August 10.
But he needs to undergo operations on his chin and left cheekbone after suffering injuries.
Joseph’s accident was confirmed by the actor’s mother Lydia herself through PEP contributor Jimi Escala. But she has not given any detail because "umiiyak, di ko pa makausap."
According to dzMM, her son and his five companions were cruising along Sumulong Highway near Fatima College in their Mitsubishi Montero when they were sideswiped by a ten-wheeler truck.
The authorities immediately apprehended the truck driver, identified as Victor Beltran. Joseph and his friends were all rushed to a nearby hospital in Marikina City.
Joseph gained recognition as a young star in ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest back in 2004. His recent projects included the Cinemalaya entry Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me and TV5’s primetime series Babaeng Hampaslupa.
