A Grade 11 female student was killed after  being run over by a trailer truck in front of the Paco Park in Ermita, Manila yesterday morning.

The victim was identified as Justinne Mariflor Sarmiento, 16, a student at the Adamson University.  She suffered serious wounds in different parts of the body.

It was learned that the accident took place at around noon, along General Luna Street in Paco.

The victim was reportedly with her classmates to attend a school activity in Paco Park when the victim was hit and then eventually run over by a trailer truck which was then being driven by one Rene Gerbert Perez, 33.

The driver reportedly turned right and failed to notice that the rear tires of his truck hit the victim.

The said truck had been taken to the impounding area of the Manila District Traffic Enforcement Unit while its driver remains with the police, pending the filing of appropriate charges against him.
