Last night, the family of Rivermaya's Mark Escueta and Jolina Magdangal got into a car accident after a van driver fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed into the couple's SUV. They were were rushed to the hospital but was immediately discharged with no serious injuries.
Rivermaya original member Mark, then, narrated the incident on his Facebook account and assured fans they are completely fine. The post reads, "Good morning. Thank God, we are okay. Salamat sa lahat ng nagme-message at tumatawag. Sorry di pa ako nakaka-reply sa karamihan. Around 6am na kami na discharge from St. Luke's E.Rod kanina kaya pag dating sa bahay nakatulog na kami agad. For those who haven't heard about what happened, our car was hit from behind last night by a van whose driver had fallen asleep at the wheel. We were at the stoplight in front of the Philippine Heart Center at around 1:30am, on our way to the airport to catch a 5am flight to HongKong."
"Our rear windshield was totally shattered and I could see the driver of the van. Their windshield was also gone and I saw that he was in pain from being pinned to his seat by the steering wheel and dashboard. Thank God walang nangyari kay Pele. Naka carseat and seatbelt siya palagi pag bumabiyahe kami. He did not even cry. Kaya lang may malaking bukol kaagad si Jolina sa likod ng ulo niya. Di namin alam kung anong tumama. Kaya gusto ko sana siyang dalhin sa ospital agad," he added.
He said he and his wife already undergone exams and no problems were found. Mark also thanked those who assisted them during the hard time. "Salamat sa lahat ng messages at mga tawag. Please pray na wala namang complications. Stay safe everyone," he concluded.
