TUGUEGARAO, Philippines (NEWSnet/AP) — A bus collided with a pickup truck early Thursday, killing 11 people and injuring six others in a northern Philippines community.

Most of the victims aboard the truck were on their way home from a wake shortly after midnight

The drivers of both vehicles were injured, along with the owner of the food stall, Palattao said.

An investigation is underway to determine who was responsible for the accident, he said.
