Eight persons were injured when a passenger van fell off a cliff in Tigbao, Zamboanga del Sur last Wednesday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the van, driven by Orlando Ocampo y Simblante, was travelling along the national highway from Pagadian City towards Ipil Municipality when the mishap occurred.

Upon reaching purok 3, the driver tried to avoid a single motorcycle which encroached on their lane.

The driver lost control of the vehicle, which then fell into a 5-meter deep ravine.

Eight out of sixteen passengers were injured.

The van incurred major damages while the driver, who escaped injury, was brought to the Tigbao Police Station.  (Remus Ong)
