3 cops figure in car accident

BURGOS, Ilocos Norte, Jan. 14–Three off-duty policemen here figured in a car self-accident that occurred at Brgy. Saoit, this town last Saturday, Jan. 12.

P/Senior Inspector Sheryl Guzman, town police chief, identified the involved policemen as SPO1 Alipio, PO3 Briones, and PO2 Francia, all members of the Burgos police station.

The report said the three were traversing the national highway aboard the car to attend the birthday party of Briones’ wife when they met a motor vehicle with glaring headlights.

The extremely bright light apparently blinded Francia, the driver, causing him to lose control of the steering wheel.

Briones, who owns the car, suffered a fractured right arm and was treated in the hospital while his two companions luckily emerged unhurt, the report said. (tri-media report)
