Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 14) – A woman was declared dead on arrival due to a severe head injury after the motorcycle she was riding with her family collided with a bus along the National Road in Tabuk City, Kalinga, authorities reported on Monday.

The woman's husband, who was driving the motorcycle, is now in stable condition after he underwent CT scan and X-ray procedures while their children ages 8 and 10 years old sustained minor abrasions.

In a statement, Victor Liner said it is doing everything possible to help the family, and ensured its full cooperation with the investigation.
