Local | Cindy Wan 13 Sep 2018

A motorcyclist killed yesterday was the owner of a production company and the father of a two-year-old girl.

Rocky Ng Lok-ki, 37, died after his motorcycle collided with a truck in Shek O in the early hours.

Ng owned WE Production Ltd, an advertisement company that participated in movie premieres.

Ng leaves behind a wife, who worked at the Kwai Chung-based firm, and their young daughter.

Another employee said Ng's wife was devastated, while his colleagues were also saddened by the death.

The employee added that Ng usually rode his motorcycle with a group of friends on weekends.

The accident occurred on Shek O Road near Lan Nai Wan Village, where Ng was negotiating a sharp bend at about 12.22am when he rammed into the oncoming truck.

The 37-year-old truck driver, surnamed Chan, tried to avoid Ng by veering to the left and hitting a slope before coming to a halt.

But as Ng laid on the ground, another motorcycle, driven by a 27-year-old man surnamed Suen, failed to brake in time and sideswiped Ng's fallen motorbike before crashing into a road barrier.

Footage from the dash cam of a car, which was following the truck, depicted at least six motorcycles traveling towards Shek O.

Having sustained multiple injuries, Ng was rushed unconscious to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, but was certified dead at 1.40am.

Suen and Chan suffered minor injuries and have been discharged from hospital.

According to a motorcyclist who wished to remain unidentified, there were at least 30 motorcycles traveling along Shek O Road.

He reported seeing Ng and a group of about seven going from Chung Hom Kok in Stanley to Shek O before the accident.

Ng was driving a Triumph Thruxton 900, a vintage model released in 2014.

Police urge witnesses with information to call them at 3660-6800.
