Speed­ing UV kills tod­dler


A one-year-old boy died when he was run-over by a speed­ing UV Ex­press van Tues­day af­ter­noon in Makati City.

The vic­tim, iden­ti­fied as Je­meryc Gol­bio De­los San­tos, a res­i­dent of 2702 Gu­atemala St., Barangay San Isidro, Makati City, was de­clared dead on ar­rival at the 24/7 Barangay Palanan Clinic.

South­ern Po­lice Dis­trict (SPD) spokesper­son Supt. Jenny Tec­son iden­ti­fied the driver of the UV Ex­press van as John David Gomez Col­lantes, 23, of 102 New Jer­sey An­nex 22, Parañaque City.

Based on their re­port, the in­ci­dent took place at around 4:30 p.m. the other day in front of the newly-built barangay hall of San Isidro on Gu­atemala Street.

Po­lice said the child was cross­ing the street when the UV Ex­press van, with plate num­ber UYE-731, hit the vic­tim and ran over him.

Col­lantes im­me­di­ately alighted from the van and brought De­los San­tos to the nearby clinic to­gether with the vic­tim’s mother.

Charges of reck­less im­pru­dence re­sult­ing to homi­cide will be filed at the Makati City pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice against Col­lantes who is now at the cus­tody of the Makati traf­fic divi­sion. (Jean Fer­nando)
