12 Filipinos injured in Japan bus-truck collision discharged from hospital

INQUIRER.net First Posted 09:35:00 11/29/2010

The 12 slightly injured Filipinos who figured in a road accident in Kameyama City, Mie Prefecture were discharged from the hospital, the Philippine Consulate General in Osaka reported to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Monday.

Nine other seriously injured Filipinos remain confined in six different hospitals.

The victims were involved in a road accident when their minibus collided with a truck at an intersection at about 7:45 a.m., Sunday. Six other passengers perished in the accident.

The 26 Filipinos, including one naturalized Japanese citizen, were on the way to work at the Sharp Kameyama facility. The minibus driver, a Japanese citizen, was also among the injured.

Kameyama police authorities arrested the truck driver, 45-year-old Takao Moriwaki. The truck driver was required to stop at the crossroad.

In an earlier statement, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration released the names of the fatalities as Mabini Bangi Paler III, 30; Analou Paler Dogami, 30; Randy Bayron Cornel, 30; Alma Dula Adarlo, 33; Remedios Bertoldo Cargullo, 24; and Ceferino Salengua Pedro Jr., 28.

According to the president of the Sharp Kamemaya, Ms. Adarlo was a Japanese citizen. The rest are classified as nikei-jin (of Japanese descent) or holders of long-term Japanese resident visas.

Two among those injured are trainees.

Together with their employer Sharp Kameyama, the Consulate General is working on the documentation requirements for the disposition of the victimsí remains, as well as extending assistance to those that are in the hospital, among others.

Sharp Kameyama is in touch with the next-of-kin of those who died in the accident.
