Cyclists injured during illegal Subic race

Several cyclists were injured after they collided with one another and crashed during an illegal bicycle race in Olongapo City over the weekend.

In a video posted by Vice Olongapo City Vice Mayor Aquilino "Jong" Cortez Jr., the cyclists were seen trying to overtake a truck when several fell in a heap.

The number of those injured is still unclear, but among them is a 14-year-old female, as reported on GMA's "24 Oras Weekend" on Sunday.

The local government said the race conducted on Saturday, June 19, was illegal and was in violation of health protocols.

The San Bernardino Road at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone has since been closed off to traffic following the incident. Additional details were not immediately available. — Jon Viktor Cabuenas/DVM, GMA News
