A van driver knocked down a female pedestrian on Shek Yam Road, Kwai Tsing, this afternoon – the pedestrian escaped with minor injuries and was taken conscious to Princess Margaret Hospital, according to police.

No arrests were made at the scene.

Local District Councillor Muli Lau Kwai-mui, for Tai Pak Tin East, Kwai Tsing District, says the area is a known blackspot. “There is always a safety hazard around the Wo Yi Hop Road car park,” she says. “People and vehicles often compete for road space.”

Lau says her office had already reported the accident blackspot to the Transport Department and requested new signage or pedestrian safety initiatives, but has yet to receive a response.
