15th May 2024 – (Hong Kong) A collision involving a police motorcycle occurred earlier today (15th) at approximately 3.18pm. The collision took place near Kai Yip Bus Terminus, across from the residential estate. The vehicles involved were a privately-owned Porsche car and a police motorcycle.

The collision resulted in a male police officer, who was riding the motorcycle, suffering injuries and falling to the ground. There are suspicions that the officer may have briefly lost consciousness. Promptly, rescue personnel arrived at the scene and discovered that the officer had sustained injuries to his head and arm. Fortunately, he regained consciousness and was provided with a head immobilizer and an oxygen mask. He was then swiftly transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for urgent medical treatment. The officer’s condition is reported to be serious.

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the accident. At the scene, the damaged police motorcycle was visibly scattered with its parts, while the left side of the private car’s body sustained significant denting.

Following preliminary investigations, a 43-year-old male named Pang, the driver of the Porsche, has been detained on suspicion of “dangerous driving causing serious bodily harm to another person.” The police are holding him in custody for further inquiries. It has been confirmed that Pang registered a zero blood alcohol level during the alcohol test. The injured officer was serving in the Traffic Department of East Kowloon and was en route to investigate a traffic accident in Sai Kung at the time of the collision. It is believed that the police siren was activated.

As a result of the incident, a section of Kwun Tong Road heading towards Mong Kok was temporarily closed to traffic but has since been reopened.
