Wheelchair driver's highway stir

Central Station | 23 Feb 2021

Drivers gaped at a man when they saw him driving his electric wheelchair on a highway.

The electric wheelchair zigzagged between vehicles on Ching Cheung Road near Caritas Medical Centre in Cheung Sha Wan.

A video that went viral online showed the driver with white hair move his wheelchair slowly in the direction of Tsuen Wan while other vehicles rushed past him on the highway.

A black van trailed behind him. Netizens believed the van driver wanted to protect the wheelchair driver from being hit by other cars.

The police have received several reports about the incident. They believe the man got lost and headed onto the highway by mistake.

However, officers failed to find him after a search yesterday morning. They encouraged the public to provide the latest location of the man in the video.
