Police arrested a 63-year-old minibus driver yesterday after a crash killed a 33-year-old man riding a motorbike.
Green minibus driver Mr Wai was driving route 407 along Tsing Yi Road West towards Ching Hong Road at 2:21pm when, turning into the T-junction with Liu To Road, he reportedly rammed into the 750cc Suzuki motorbike ridden by Mr Cheung.
Emergency crews rushed the victim to Princess Margaret Hospital unconscious – he died about 90 minutes after the crash.
The impact smashed the minibus windscreen and tore off the front bumpers, while debris was scattered all over the junction. The motorbike appeared to be almost brand new, registered in the last month or so.
The junction filter is notorious for poor driving behaviour, with many vehicles turning right onto Liu To Road through amber or even red lights on Tsing Yi Road West.
Police condemned the “irresponsible driving behaviour” of the minibus driver and arrested him for dangerous driving causing death.
