November 18, 2018 – A black SUV fell from the third level of an elevated parking area at Promenade, Greenhills, San Juan City earlier this morning.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Teodoro Paraiso Llamanzares, 83 years old, father-in-law of Senator Grace Poe.

In a phone interview, PSSupt. Dindo Reyes told News5 that the motorist was about to park his car at the third level when the vehicle continuously accellerated towards the barriers of the parking and fell at the ground area.

“Saktong pag-ahon niya [from second level parking], dumiretso na siya sa barrier,” Reyes said.

Llamanzares was rushed to Cardinal Santos Hospital and now stable after sustaining injuries.

Meanwhile, Senator Grace Poe thanked those who prayed and wished his father-in-law a fast recovery.

“Nagpapasalamat kami na ang aking biyenan, si Dr. Teodoro Paraiso Llamanzares, ay nasa mabuting kalagayan at walang ibang nasaktan sa insidente. Mabuti at nagsuot sya ng sinturong pangkaligtasan kaya’t nagtamo lamang sya ng kaunting bali at mga galos; umaasa kami sa kanyang mabilis na paggaling,” the senator said.
