     Police are investigating a fatal traffic accident in Cheung Sha Wan this morning (September 22) in which an 85-year-old man died.

     At about 7.15am, a special purpose vehicle (SPV) driven by a 34-year-old man was travelling along Camp Street northbound. When approaching the junction of Fuk Wing Street and Camp Street, it reportedly knocked down the 85-year-old man who was crossing the road.

     Sustaining serious head injuries, the man was rushed to Caritas Medical Centre in unconscious state and was certified dead at 7.53am.

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

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

     Anyone who witnessed the accident or has any information to offer is urged to contact the investigating officers on 3661 9062.
