5-year-old survivor of Tarlac accident unaware her entire family has died
The 5-year-old suffered numerous injuries due to the strength of the impact. She will also have to undergo therapy so that she can recover completely.
According to reports, the family of four were riding their motorcycle along a highway in Tarlac when they collided head-on with an SUV that suddenly swerved.
The impact was so strong that the CCTV footage showed that the entire family got thrown off because of the impact. Both the motorcycle and the SUV were wrecked in the crash.
Both the child’s mother and her older brother were dead on the spot because of the injuries that they received from the accident. Her father was rushed to the hospital, but sadly, he passed away due to blood loss.
The only survivor was the youngest child, Jillian. She’s out of the hospital, but she is currently under observation as she is still recovering from her injuries. She will also have to undergo physical therapy so that she can walk again.
According to her uncle, Jillian still sometimes looks for her parents and her big brother, especially when she’s in pain. However they say that she already knows about the accident, and that they have died.
According to reports, the SUV driver fell asleep on the wheel, and that’s why he swerved and collided with the motorcycle.
In spite of the financial assistance that the driver has offered the family, they’re still disappointed that the driver still hasn’t showed up to see the family. The family has decided not to file any charges.
