Daniel Padilla Reveals Reason for Forgiving Tricycle Driver Who Hit His Vintage Car
Kapamilya actor-singer Daniel Padilla recalls traffic altercation and revealed the reason why he forgive tricycle driver after hitting his vintage car.
Previously, Daniel Padilla involved in a minor accident in West Fairview, Quezon City. The sports car of the actor hit by a tricycle driver cost a whopping at least 9-14 million pesos.
However, instead of getting angry, the 25-year-old actor allegedly gave money to the tricycle driver. He then calmly talks to the tricycle driver who hit his vehicle.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Push, Daniel revealed the reason for his act of kindness despite expensive damage. He said that he never intended to ask for payment for damages from the driver who caused the collision.
“Nung nabangga ako parang siyempre una ‘oh my God,’ ang unang nasa isip ko lang nun, sana hindi nabasag yung ilaw. Kasi ang hirap maghanap ng 1970 na ilaw nung kotse,” he said on the Apolo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience virtual conference.
“Pero nung hindi naman, siyempre andun na rin yung, ‘Pare, anong ibabayad sa ‘yo nun?’ Wala naman eh. Wala naman silang maibibigay sa ‘yo tapos makikipag-away pa ako dun, magmumukha pa akong tanga dun.”
“Para sa akin, kapag nagwala-wala pa ako, mukha akong gago sa kanila. Hindi naman ako ganun eh. Ayoko ng ganun. So ganun na lang, gusto ko lang na mag-sorry siya sa ginawa niya,” he added.
He also clarified the circulating viral photos and videos of him talking calmly and even handing money to the tricycle driver after the accident. He said he did those acts because he wanted a peaceful resolution.
Kasi maraming mga driver na kapag nagkamali, mag-ri-reason out pa, magrarason pa ng kung anu-ano. Yung sa akin ko lang, aminin mo na mali ka, humingi ka ng paumanhin sa akin, okay na ako. Which yung driver na yun hindi pa niya ginagawa. Gusto pa niya ako sisihin sa nangyari. Pero eventually nag-sorry na rin siya so okay na ako dun sa ganun dahil it happens man. It’s inevitable. It happens,” he said.
Dj also admitted that his car has never been fixed after the accident. He added that he is aware of people’s opinions regarding his act of kindness.
“Eh sinasabi ng ibang tao, ‘May pera ka lang kasi kaya ganun.’ Eh check nila kung pinaayos ko na yung kotse ko. Hindi ko pa rin naman ipinapaayos dahil mahal. Pero wala ka namang magagawa eh. Ano ng magagawa ko?” he explained.
