Driver’s License of SUV Owner in Viral Hit-and-Run Incident Revoked by LTO
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – LTO has revoked the driver’s license of the SUV owner in a viral hit-and-run suspect in Mandaluyong City.
On Monday (June 13, 2022), the Land Transportation Office reported that the driver’s license of the SUV owner has been revoked. The SUV owner of the Toyota RAV4 bearing plate number NCO 3781 has been found liable.
The SUV owner identified as Jose Antonio San Vicente has been found liable for reckless driving and violation of Section 55 (Duty of driver in case of an accident) of Republic Act No. 4136, according to the agency.
LTO has disqualified San Vicente from getting a driver’s license and driving a motor vehicle. The agency considers the owner’s action during the hit-and-run incident as unacceptable behavior of a driver.
“The LTO finds Respondent San Vicente liable for Reckless Driving and for violating Section 55 (Duty of driver in case of an accident) of R.A. 4136 when he abandoned the scene and the victim. Together with his disregard for the authority of the Land Transportation Office, his acts are considered unacceptable behaviors of a driver,” LTO said.
Meanwhile, Acting Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police Lieutenant General Vicente Danao Jr. challenged the suspect to voluntarily surrender and not wait for an arrest warrant.
Danao revealed that it was not the first time that the registered owner of an SUV has faced previous complaints of reckless driving. He has three apprehensions for reckless driving in 2010, 2015, and 2016.
