Actor John Lloyd Cruz figured in a biking accident Thursday afternoon during the shoot for ABS-CBN Summer Station ID in a part of Mt. Pinatubo in Tarlac.
According to reports, John Lloyd is in the middle of the shoot for the said station ID when he fell off his bike face first after trying to avoid a pothole.
The actor suffered bruises and cuts and was brought to a nearby hospital for immediate medical treatment. He has undergone a CT scan and received four stitches after sustaining a wound in the left nostril where a stone was reportedly lodged.
John Lloyd is said to be transferred to a hospital in Metro Manila.
John Lloyd's management arm Star Magic confirmed the news in a statement. Star Magic also dismissed early reports that John Lloyd's girlfriend Angelica Panganiban was also hurt in the accident. The talent arm clarified that Angelica was also in the shoot but not in the scene with Lloydie.
Below is the official statement of Star Magic:
"John Lloyd Cruz had a minor bike accident during a shoot and he has undergone immediate medical treatment. He is fine and in good condition. Angelica Panganiban was present at the shoot but was not part of the scene and not involved in the accident.
