melody-gersbach1Yesterday, August 21, the 24-year-old Bb. Pilipinas International 2009 Melody Gersbach died on the spot when the Innova car that they were riding collided head-on with a passenger bus in Bula, Camarines Sur.

Two of her companions–her driver Santos Ramos and her manager, a bicolano fashion designer Alden Orense–also died in the road mishap. The fourth passenger, fashion designer Ronald Lita survived and was brought to Bicol Medical Center but is still in a critical condition.

Gersbach, being the Chair of Miss Bicolandia Committee, was headed to Naga City in Camarines Sur via Maharlika Highway when the accident took place. This road is reported to have many fatal accidents in the past.

The bus driver of the Guevarra Bus Line, Wilson Pontillas, surrendered to the police. However, the police said the bus tried to avoid a tricycle when it crashed with Melody‘s car.

The wake for Melody Gersbach will be at Lignon Funeral Homes in Legazpi City.
