Carelessness of truck driver causes heavy traffic, massive power outage in Manila

In cooperation with Meralco linemen, personnel from Manila’s Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office work double time clearing out fallen and tilted Meralco posts laden with live electrical wires along Taft Avenue on Saturday (23 July 2022).

Based on a CCTV footage, the untoward incident happened after a trailer truck snagged the hanging electrical wires as it passes the intersection of Ayala Boulevard and Taft Avenue near Philippine Normal University, Manila.

The snafu caused heavy traffic and massive power outage in the area, no thanks to the carelessness of the trailer driver behind the wheel.
