In her Instagram account, GMA Network talent Carla Abellana lambasted the Cavite police officials for twisting the truth about their response to the fiery Tagaytay car accident.
It can be recalled that Cavite police director Sr. Supt. Eliseo Cruz was quoted as saying in Philstar, “elements of the Silang Police Community Precinct, who were first on the scene, together with officials of Barangay San Jose and the Tagaytay rescue team, tried to rescue the passengers but the car exploded.”
But recently, witnesses came one after the other and debunked the earlier claim made by the high ranking Cavite police officials.
The first witness named Den Castillo narrated her own version of the story in her Facebook account. The witness said they were there when the fire started to engulf the Toyota Vios car. She said she saw a group of men who did their best to save the victims of the car crash, but no policemen were in sight or officials from the Barangay San Jose as claimed earlier by the police official.
However, according to the accounts of bystanders, a police mobile patrol arrived early just before the fire started, but left at the scene of the incident, allegedly to personally report the incident to their colleagues.
This was corroborated by another witness who were present at the crash scene five minutes after the crash. They were at the nearby Starbucks when they heard the noise of a speeding car followed by the noise of the skidding tire as the driver tried to apply the brakes and finally, the sound of a loud noise when the car made the crash impact.
With that being said, the Kapuso actress Carla Abellana took to her Instagram account to condemn the Cavite police officials who issued the claim that the Silang Police Community Precinct, together with officials of Barangay San Jose and the Tagaytay rescue team made an effort to put off the fire, but unfortunately the car exploded. In the end, the remaining passenger who was showing signs of life was killed.
Nakakahiya kayo, Sr. Supt. Eliseo Cruz and Supt. Ferdinand Quirante. Mga sinungaling. You two are a disgrace to this country and to the world. Sana mabasa ng lahat ito para alam nila ang totoo. Here’s a classic case of how sick this nation’s system is. Nakakawalang-gana.
