Tourist critical in TST accidentTop News | Stella Wong 23 Apr 2019
A taxi driver was yesterday arrested for dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm after knocking down a tourist from Shanghai making a crossing when the pedestrian light was green.
The accident happened at 8.14am on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, where the 64-year-old tourist, Fan, was crossing.
He was hit by the taxi, driven by 50-year-old Chan, who was turning right from Haiphong Road.
Fan was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital unconscious with a severe head injury. He remained in a critical condition last night.
Chan is suspected of making an illegal turn into Nathan Road.
The intersection only allows vehicles to go straight or turn left.
Chan passed a breathalyzer test.
Fan was here with his 30-year-old daughter, who got a call from officers, and other relatives.
He had left the hotel for an early-morning walk.
