A jeepney hit a group of students while crossing a pedestrian lane in Poblacion, Makati City on the night of February 12.  One of the victims died of injuries.

Makati Police chief Colonel Rogelio Simon said the victims who are students at the Pio del Pilar National High School were crossing a pedestrian lane along JP Rizal when the jeepney suddenly accelerated and bumped them.

"I am deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic accident last night in Barangay Poblacion that has claimed the life of a 14-year old student of Pio del Pilar National High School and caused serious injuries to his seven other schoolmates as they were walking home," said Makati Mayor Abby Binay.

The following is the rest of Binay's statement.

My heart goes out to their parents, especially to the parents of Jules Villapando, whose young life was abruptly cut short by the senseless tragedy. I offer my heartfelt condolences to them.

The Makati police are conducting a thorough investigation and now have the driver in custody. I have asked that he be immediately subjected to a drug test. I have also ordered the police to identify the operator of the jeepney and recommend the immediate suspension of its franchise by LTFRB.

Since last night, our quick response teams have been posted at the Ospital ng Makati and Makati Medical Center where the victims were brought for treatment, to extend all possible assistance and closely monitor their condition. 

I appeal to all Makatizens to join me in praying for the victims that they may be healed fast and fully recover from their traumatic experience.  Let us also pray for their families that the Lord give them hope and courage during this crisis. 

I assure the victims and their families that the city government will see to it that justice will be served
