Man who figured in Greenhills parking lot accident, a TV exec
The man who was reported to have fallen off the carpark building while driving his car was a 73 year old television executive. Because of the incident he might face charges from the owners of five of at least eight vehicles who incurred damages after his car nose-dove from a multi-level parking building of the Greenhills Shopping Center last Friday.
According to San Juan police officer-in-charge Superintendent Jose Rivera, they are still waiting for the other complainants before filing the formal damages.
“We are still waiting for at least four to five complainants to surface before filing the formal charges. The car owners were told to bring the estimate of the damages to their vehicles,” “One of the drivers of the damaged vehicles sustained slight injuries” he added.
Included in the destroyed vehicles were a Toyota Vios, Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Honda Jazz, Ford Ranger, Toyota Hi-Ace and Toyota Fortuner.
Rivera said that he will only reveal the identities of the complainants when the formal filing of charges of reckless imprudence resulting in multiple damage to property and physical injuries against Juanito Nocos, vice president for sales of Basketball TV.
Based on the report, Nocos reportedly “passed out” and was unable to control his white Mitsubishi sedan, which resulted to crashing into five cars on the third level of the parking building and four more vehicles when his car dropped from the building’s wall and fell to the ground, police said.
Meanwhile, the executive was reported to be in steady condition at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center.
The San Juan police chief said they will still have to check if Nocos is wearing a pacemaker, a small device positioned in the chest to assist in controlling abnormal heartbeat.
People with pacemakers and those who have heart bypass surgery are not allowed by the Land Transportation Office from driving vehicles since they will “endanger other people,” Rivera said.
Additional charges will be filed against Nocos if it will be proven that he is wearing a pacemaker, Rivera added.
