San Vicente in a press conference apologized for the incident and to the victim, Christian Joseph Floralde.
“My apologies sa nangyari. My apologies kay Mr. Floralde at sa kanyang pamilya,” he said.
San Vicente’s camp also said that they will shoulder the medical expenses of Floralde.
Recently, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) revoked San Vicente's license and "perpetually disqualified from securing a driver’s license and driving a motor vehicle."
He was also charged with "Reckless Driving and for violating Section 55 (Duty of driver in case of an accident) of R.A. 4136" for abandoning the scene.
LTO said his actions were “tantamount to the acts of an improper person to operate a motor vehicle”.
