Three-vehicle pileup causes heavy traffic on Edsa.
A three-vehicle collision involving a tow truck, a dump truck and a passenger bus caused heavy traffic along the southbound lane of Edsa in Cubao, Quezon City, Wednesday morning.
DZIQ Radyo Inquirer 990 reported that at about 5:35 a.m., a tow truck that was pulling a dump truck made a sudden stop as it approached the Main Avenue Southbound bus stop.
The momentum of the loaded dump truck caused it to barrel forward, ramming the tow truck owned by Dragon V Towing Service.
It then collided with a Taguig Metroliner Bus that was on an adjacent lane.
The collision severely damaged the dump truck's cab and windshield, scattering shattered glass on the road.
No one was reported hurt in the incident.
The incident, however, occupied three southbound lanes of Eda and stalled traffic amid the rush hour.
