One killed, 35 injured in bus crash
A 17-year-old female passenger died and 35 others were injured, when a KMB 692 double-decker bus turned on its right in Tseung Kwan O. 6 people remain in critical condition.
"Some of the cuts on my head and limbs were so deep I could see the bones," he said. The boy is in intensive care at Tseung Kwan O Hospital.
The bus driver is suspected of causing death by dangerous driving. The police say they can’t rule out speeding as the cause of the tragedy. The Chief Executive, Donald Tsang, said he was shocked and saddened by the fatal crash. He expressed condolences to the families of the dead girl and the injured victims.
There is a review by the KMB and Transport Department after the police complete their investigations. I hope their reviews will cover the aspect of driving attitudes that are fundamental to road safety.
What can the government do to promote higher road safety awareness among drivers?
