Fatal traffic accident in Kwun Tong
     Police are investigating a fatal traffic accident in Kwun Tong this afternoon (January 2) in which a 53-year-old man died.

     At about 12.05pm, a light goods vehicle (LGV) driven by an 82-year-old man was travelling along Cha Kwo Ling Road westbound. When approaching near the junction of Cha Kwo Ling Road and Ko Fai Road, it reportedly lost control, collided with a private car which parked at roadside and later rammed into water barriers and a bollard light. The LGV continued to skid forward along Cha Kwo Ling Road, knocked down two male pedestrians, aged 53 and 46 respectively, and finally hit the railings and crashed onto the pavement.

     Sustaining serious head injury, the 53-year-old male pedestrian was rushed to United Christian Hospital in unconscious state and was certified dead at 3.24pm. In addition, the 82-year-old LGV driver felt unwell and the 46-year-old male pedestrian sustained minor injuries. They were sent to United Christian Hospital for medical treatment in conscious state.

     The LGV driver was arrested for dangerous driving causing death and is being detained for further enquiries.

     Investigation by the Special Investigation Team of Traffic, Kowloon East is underway.
