The LTO has issued a 90-day suspension on the license of the driver of the car. The LTO-Intelligence and Investigation Division (IID) also said that the vehicle involved has also been put on alarm.


Investigations will continue, but the driver of the four-wheeler will be given a chance to show up in the next hearing to defend himself. As for the BOSS Ironman organizers, they have now been given five days to come up with a position paper and explain why it should not be pressed with administrative charges.
