BAGUIO CITY — Police said a child remains in critical condition at a hospital after the jeepney he is riding with family members lost its brakes and collided with a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) along sitio Bubon, Barangay Virac in Itogon, Benguet on Monday evening.

Itogon police said that the child is still at the operating room of the hospital where ten more victims were rushed after the accident.
