Police had to disable Cuenca's car during the chase, hitting a Grab driver in the crossfire, Bacay said.

The Grab driver was brought to a hospital in Mandaluyong where he is in stable condition.

"This is a very unfortunate incident, walang may gusto nito. But nonetheless I've instructed yung chief of police ng Mandaluyong to take care of all the needs of the victim," Bacay said.
