The Chit Estella Road Safety Page

VERA Files trustee and journalism professor Lourdes Chit Estella-Simbulan, a journalist of three decades, was known to the public by her byline Chit Estella. She was killed on the evening of May 13, 2011 when a Universal Guiding Star bus rammed the taxi she was in near the Ayala Technohub on Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City. This page provides deeper analysis of the causes and impacts of road crashes -- a leading cause of death worldwide. This project is produced under the Bloomberg Initiative Global Road Safety Media Fellowship implemented by the World Health Organization, Department of Transportation and VERA Files.
