Killed, Dozens Injured in Hong Kong Bus Crash


Police in Hong Kong yesterday said they were investigating a bus accident that left 19 people dead and scores more injured, with the bus driver arrested for unsafe driving.

The accident happened in a rural area in Hong Kong's New Territories, near the town of Tai Po.

Mr Joni said police were still investigating the cause of the accident, but a preliminary investigation showed the brakes malfunctioned while the bus was going up the hill and rolled down, hitting a motorbike before falling into a grass field.

KMB expressed regret over the fatal accident.

Fourteen people were injured last April when a double-decker tram tipped over, with a 23-year-old driver later arrested for unsafe driving causing harm to others.
