Dito ay inilahad din ni Diether ang naging sanhi ng aksidente.
Sabi niya sa statement, “On February 3, 2022, I had a long and exhausting meeting which lasted until almost midnight. As I was driving home, I figured in a vehicular accident involving my SUV and a truck.
“I am relieved that no one else got hurt and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused due to the unfortunate accident, especially to the other party.
“I am extremely grateful that I emerged unscathed except for a bump in the head and some bruises.
“I am very thankful for God’s continuous mercy and protection.”
Nagpasalamat naman siya sa mga taong hindi nag-atubiling tumulong upang madala siya agad sa ospital.
Dagdag niya, “Thank you sincerely to everyone onsite, from the people who called for help, the first responders, and especially to the Philippine Red Cross personnel who rushed me to the hospital.
“I also wish to express my gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Makati Medical Center for taking very good care of me.
“I am feeling better now and I have already been cleared to recuperate in private.
“Again, I wish to thank everyone for your prayers and well-wishers.”
