MANILA, Philippines — Five people were killed and 19 others wounded when two passenger buses collided in Lucena City, Quezon province late Tuesday evening, a police official said.

At around 11:15 p.m., a Manila-bound JAC Liner bus (plate number CVB-508) was cruising along Diversion road in Gulang-Gulang village when a Lucena-bound JAM Transit bus (TYG-422) on the opposite lane swerved into its path and hit head-on, said Inspector Romeo Uy, chief of the Lucena police’s investigation division.

Three passengers on the JAC Liner bus and two on the JAM Transit bus were killed, Uy said in a phone interview.

The nineteen wounded included the JAC Liner driver, Jaime Magtoto, and the JAM Transit driver, Reynante Carabido, Uy said.

Uy said the cause of the accident had not been determined. He said investigators will question the two drivers when they are well enough.
