June 15, Monday, the car of Cam Araneta’s father, Del, was hit by a huge stone that was intentionally dropped by unidentified persons who where loitering at the top of the Quezon Avenue tunnel.
The car enroute to Quezon City Circle was just running at 40kph, at around 7:30pm.Fortunately, Mr. Araneta was not hurt in the incident, according to Cam, but his car windshield was damaged heavily.
“Luckily, Dad is alert. If ever you guys pass by this tunnel, please do be careful. Seems a lot of people are crazy in that area”, said Cam Araneta.
“Yeah, there’s a lot of people throwing and fighting in the road, they don’t mind others who will get hit. It is scary, so please be careful to those who are driving,” said Edith Isio Aradillo.
Similar incident of a dancer, Jonas Cabellon, who owns a Toyota Corolla happened last August 9, 2011.
Cabellon, is a member of Manila-based dance troupe Men at Work.
His car’s windshield was broken after it was hit by a huge stone while it was parked outside the home at Tormis Extension, Urgello Street in barangay Sambag Uno, Cebu City.
Meanwhile on Araneta’s case, for how many years he had been working, it was his first time to encounter the situation in Quezon Avenue Tunnel/Underground.
