ABS-CBN reporter gets hit by car while crossing road in Makati

Feb. 07, 19 | 6:06 am

ABS-CBN lifestyle and entertainment news reporter Marie Lozano met an accident on February 5 that caused her to experience “mental trauma”.

Lozano took to her social media account to share the story on how she got hit by a car while she was crossing the street in Salcedo Village in Makati City.

“I am so thankful to be alive and in one piece.

“I want to share a very traumatic experience that happened to me yesterday.

“As my best friend and I were beginning to cross a very quiet one way street in Salcedo village just after brunch, a car turning left that showed no signs of stopping hit me,” she shared on Instagram.

She continued: “I tried to run away like my friend did but at that time, the bumper had already hit my knee causing me to fall on my back and hit my head on the pavement. It all happened so fast, but in my mind everything happened in slow motion.

“My brain processed everything as it happened, anticipating the next thing. I was afraid the tire was going to run over my leg if the car didn’t stop, and then I thought of my son just before I thought that I could die at that moment.

She added that the female driver of the car did not even apologize for what happened and just told her that she did not see her crossing the road.

“It was then that the car stopped. A woman in her 60’s wearing a medical mask came out, already in defense saying it was the fault of another car passing and that she didn’t see us.

“At that point I was laying flat on my back in shock. She asked if I wanted her to take me to the hospital. After years of working as police reporter, I knew not to move a person who got injured in the head. I wanted to see if I could move my arms and my legs.

She said that the driver just went back inside her car and drove away as she was taken to the hospital for a scan.

“The lady went back into her car with the engine still running and waited there. I was taken to the hospital for a scan. I was relieved that I had no broken bones, just possibly PTSD.

Lozano assured her followers that she is physically fine after the incident, except for some minor injuries. However, she admitted that the incident affected her mentally.

“Today I woke up, with bruises, a sore back, a painful neck (like I was strangled) but more than the physical manifestations. It is the mental trauma that will take time to heal.

“What I could not get over is the behavior of the woman who hit me, she seemed educated but she was just about self-preservation and denial. How can people some people not have kindness and compassion?

“The passersby and witnesses that came to the rescue showed more care than this woman. One even told her she should apologize to me.

“How do we clear the streets of people like these? If she didn’t kill me, I keep thinking she could hurt someone someday.

She ended her post by saying she is thankful that she is still alive after what happened.

“I am thankful to have survived this in one piece and I know there are worse drivers out there. How do we save the streets from drivers like these?”
