As Glenn and her friends were standing near “kuyang magtataho“, a screeching car was vastly approaching their way. And to everyone’s shock, the car went straight ahead, hitting the unwary vendor. The unforgiving vehicle then proceeded to drag him along the cemented floor, until he ended up tumbling underneath it.
“I saw the way you got hit while you were about to sell the last taho you ever made. We saw how you were dragged and rolled under the car when that car hit you.”
The photo attached to the Facebook post shows the Taho container on the ground, with all of its contents spilled along the road. Small yellow cups were also scattered on the tragic scene.

“You gave a good fight and I’m sorry you had to be a terrible lesson learned for drivers like me. RIP. You’re in good hands now.”
The post has reached more than 18,000 reactions and 5,000 shares, alongside hundreds of comments from dismayed social media users. Read some of their comments below:
