Press Statement of the Clark Development Corporation on the Fontana incident
Clark Development Corporation (CDC) today, November 1, has turned over to Mabalacat City Police the drivers involved in the incident at the Fontana Leisure Parks in Clark Freeport Zone for filing of appropriate criminal charges against the people involved.
Initial investigation by the CDC Public Safety Department (PSD) officers who were immediately dispatched to the scene showed that the collision of two fast-moving vehicles caused the death of a pedestrian, a Chinese national, who was sideswiped by one of the vehicles.
Reports by PSD state that one driver is a Filipino and the other a Chinese national.
The incident brings to fore the need to follow and respect Philippine laws and regulations. In Clark, we tolerate no one -- whether Filipinos or foreigners -- who are in violation of any traffic rules and regulations especially overspeeding on any Clark road particularly inside tourism estates and residential areas.
We also reiterate our warning to foreign workers that any involvement in criminal charges can lead to revocation of their working permits. Repeated violations could also lead to sanctions and penalties and eventually to suspension or permanent revocation of permit to operate of the companies they work for in Clark.
