ABS-CBN reporter Gretchen Fullido took to Instagram to share how they got involved in a traffic accident while covering the midterm elections last Monday.

Fullido said in her post that they were about to go to their next location when a garbage truck that was hurriedly backing up rammed into their parked vehicle.

As seen in the photos, the impact was so bad that it damaged the back part of Fullido’s vehicle where her crew stored their media equipments.

“I was at the back seat and I really felt my head and neck jolt. Thankfully, me, my cameraman Kuya Oca and our piloto Bonifacio were not badly hurt,” she said.

Fullido added that they tried to continue with their coverage but they had to go to the hospital first because they felt dizzy and had pain in their neck after the impact.

“We did X-rays and the doctor said, both Kuya Oca and I had Cervical Spasm (neck spasm) because of whiplash which was inevitable because of the impact of the crash,” she said.

“We were given painkillers and anti nausea medicine. I’m still very thankful that we were protected by our Lord God and it was nothing major. Accidents really happen,” she added.

Fullido went on to say that the doctors advised them to get some rest and observe their necks.

Despite what happened, she said that they still pushed through and continued to work on their election coverage.

Fullido ended her post by thanking the doctors and nurses who took care of them.

While covering for Halalan 2019, a garbage truck hurriedly backing up rammed into our parked crew cab as we were about to jump off to our next location. The impact was strong and the back of our crew cab was damaged. I was at the back seat and I really felt my head & neck jolt. Thankfully, me, my cameraman Kuya Oca and our piloto Bonifacio were not badly hurt. We still tried to cover but had to go to the hospital because we were a little dizzy and we were feeling pain on our neck. Always better to be safe, right? We did X-rays and the doctor said, both Kuya Oca and I had Cervical Spasm (neck spasm) because of whiplash which was inevitable because of the impact of the crash. We were given painkillers and anti nausea medicine. I’m still very thankful that we were protected by our Lord God and it was nothing major. Accidents really happen. The doctor advised us to get some rest and observe our necks. Knowing that we needed every person in our news team to cover, I still tried my very best to work online to get Halalan 2019 stories. Thank you also to the kind doctors and nurses who attended to us earlier. To everyone who voted, campaigned, volunteered, covered and did election related activities, I hope you all had a safe Halalan 2019. Now that the ballots are being counted, let’s all pray for the candidates and may God bless the Philippines 🙏🏼🇵🇭 . . #halalan2019
