MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Grace Poe’s father-in-law on Sunday was injured after his vehicle overturned and fell from an elevated parking building at a shopping mall at Greenhills, San Juan City.

Reports from San Juan City police said that Teodoro Paraiso Llamanzares, 83, was driving his black Toyota Innova and accidentally stepped on the accelerator of his vehicle, which then hit the barriers.

As a result, the vehicle fell from the three-story Promenade carpark at around 9:45 a.m.

Llamanzares, a resident of San Juan, was rushed to the Cardinal Santos Medical Center for treatment.

Police said no other individual was hurt from the incident.

In a statement, Poe said her father-in-law is now under recovery.

"Thankfully my father-in-law, Dr. Teodoro Paraiso Llamanzares, is all right and no one else was hurt in the incident. It's a good thing he was wearing his seatbelt so he only has a few fractured ribs and bruises, but we expect a speedy recovery," Poe said.

"We want to thank everyone for their prayers and concern. We're just thankful he was kept safe and no one else was injured," she added. —Rosette Adel
