Car Crash: The 48-year-old actor was taken to hospital immediately after his injuries. No one else was injured in the accident.
A garbage collector on duty at the time told how Dieser hit the back of a parked dump truck.
“Nagdadakot kami kasi dito, sir, e. Galing ho siya doon, bumubulusok, ‘pag bangga niya diyan nagulat na lang kami. Napatakbo nga kami, kasi akala ko an’ng nangyari. E, nakita ko na lang na bumangga na siya diyan ,” Nilo Villanueva was quoted in an interview with Unang Balita.
Meanwhile, a barangay peace and a security official said Ocampo was from his business partner who was allegedly drunk.
An investigation is ongoing, and Diesel’s camp has yet to issue a statement.
The accident happened just before 1 am on Friday, February 4, ABS-CBN News reported. Diesel hit a garbage truck while driving his SUV on the southbound lane of the freeway. Garbage trucks are temporarily parked on the side of the road while their personnel collects garbage.
The Philippine Red Cross immediately transported the injured actor on a stretcher to the Makati Medical Center. Diether’s SUV’s hood and bumper were damaged after the crash.
According to the Teleradyo report cited by Inquirer News, Responder Joey Alicante said Diesel appeared to “refuse” to be taken to the hospital by Red Cross personnel.
