Apple Daily, and other Chinese media, are reporting an accident in Pak Sha Wan. 13 people were hospitalised.

At about 9:00 am on Saturday morning, a dump truck and green minibus were travelling along Hiram’s Highway to the city. When they were near Pak Sha Wan, a taxi was driven out of an adjacent parking lot. The minibus slowed down to make way for the taxi. The truck was suspected to be too close and hit the minibus, and then pushed into the taxi.

5 male and 8 female passengers (22 to 73 years old) were injured, along with the driver. The 33-year-old Liu Xiaobei male driver suffered waist and neck pain. All the injured were sent by ambulance to Tseung Kwan O Hospital. The road was closed in both directions for around an hour, which caused much traffic congestion on a busy Saturday morning.
