In a grim week for motorcyclists, a biker was killed early this afternoon as his bike reportedly struck a kerb along the Tseun Wan section of Tuen Mun Road. The motorcyclist was taken unconscious to Yan Chai Hospital in Tseun Wan where he was certified dead.
This is the third motorcyclist to be killed or seriously injured this week. On Monday morning, a biker died after a collision with a medium goods vehicle near Ma Yau Tong; and on Tuesday afternoon, a motorcyclist and his female passenger were seriously injured after a collision with a light goods vehicle in Kwai Chung. That pair have since regained consciousness, while the driver of the light goods vehicle was arrested for dangerous driving and released on bail.
Year-to-date in 2020, according to police press releases, there have been 14 deaths on Hong Kong’s roads, 10 of whom were pedestrians and 3 of whom were motorcyclists.
