2010 Miss Mandaue Karina Gajudo lost her leg after the Mazda that she was riding slammed into the wall of a flyover in Banilad, Cebu City. The 21- year old beauty pageant titlist was riding with 19 year old Junichi Jose Dizon Kuribayashi. Both are residents Talamban, Cebu City. The accident happened at 4 a.m. Saturday. Gajudo was apparently thrown out of the car because of the intensity of the impact when car hit the wall. The car was turned upside down and it also hit a signage. The Mazda 2 was totally wrecked while both passengers were taken to different hospitals.
The police were asked by the Gajudo family to retrieve Karina’s leg a few hours after the accident. The incident caused a minor traffic jam in the area as motorists cannot help but pause and look at the wrecked remains of the car. The police have not yet determined who was driving the car when the accident happened but some investigators believe that Kuribayashi was the one driving as they found his driver’s license inside the car.
