According to a report by ABS-CBN’s “Star Patrol,” the driver of Kapamilya actor Ejay Falcon was involved in a hit-and-run car accident while on the way to the actor’s taping in Pagsanjan, Laguna.
The owner of the other vehicle, Tanay Councilor Raffy Reyes, said the actor’s driver crashed into his car and reportedly sped away instead of helping him.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Reyes said the accident happened in Pililia, Rizal, on Wednesday, March 7.
The official report of PO2 Rodel Payas of the Pililia Municipal Police Station states that Ejay’s driver, Albert Oracion, was driving the actor’s Toyota Grandia at around 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday when he crashed into Reyes’s black Honda Civic.
While Ejay Falcon admitted that he was in the vehicle at the time of the accident, he claimed that he was asleep when it happened. He only found out about it when they got to Laguna, where his driver explained to him everything that happened.
Oracion, who was charged with reckless imprudence resulting in physical injuries and damage to property, was released on Friday, March 9, after posting bail.
According to the actor, his driver sped away because the latter panicked as it was his first time to get into an accident. Ejay also offered his sincerest apologies to Reyes, and their respective camps are now working towards an amicable settlement.
