Multiple traffic incidents disrupt Gascoigne Road overpass in Yau Ma Tei

Gascoigne Road

19th April 2024 – (Hong Kong) A taxi lost control while navigating the Gascoigne Road overpass towards Hung Hom, likely due to slippery conditions caused by rain. The taxi collided with two water-filled barriers, causing significant damage to the vehicle’s front. Remarkably, the driver escaped without injuries and promptly reported the incident for assistance.

Law enforcement officials are currently investigating the cause of the accident, which led to severe traffic congestion on the overpass in both directions. Traffic flow was temporarily halted completely as authorities worked to clear the scene and manage the buildup of vehicles.

Merely ten minutes after the initial accident, another collision occurred on the same overpass. A delivery truck collided with the rear of another taxi, resulting in extensive damage to the taxi’s trunk. Fortunately, this second incident also resulted in no injuries.
