The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Sunday said the Kuwaiti government is now investigating the driver of the SUV that plowed into a group of Filipino bikers after the suspect has already surrendered to the authorities.
Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Eduardo de Vega said the driver may face charges if proven that he or she was recklessly driving at the time of the accident involving around 50 Pinoy bikers.
“The driver has surrendered. It is still unclear what was said but we think he or she is Kuwaiti. The person voluntarily surrendered to the police, so the Kuwaiti government is investigating and is reviewing the films of the accident,” De Vega said.
The DFA official said that the SUV swerved and hit the group of bikers who were reportedly on the bike lane.
According to De Vega, eleven of the victims were brought to two hospitals, where seven of them were already discharged, two are still under observation, while the other two are seemingly under a critical condition.
“The two victims have pretty bad injuries—one was on the head, while the other one on the back,” he said.
