13th April 2024 – (Hong Kong) A private car carrying two men and a woman was involved in a late-night accident in Hung Hom. At approximately 1.11am today, the vehicle was traveling along Hung Hom Road towards the direction of the MTR Hung Hom Station when it veered off near Harbourfront Horizon. The car was suspected to have lost control, crashing into a flower bed divider and colliding with a road sign. It then careened forward, flipping onto its side, resembling a scene from an action movie. Concerned witnesses reported the incident, suspecting someone might be trapped inside.

Rescue personnel arrived at the scene to find the driver, a 22-year-old man identified as Yeung, with visible tattoos on his arms, and a 32-year-old female passenger injured but already out of the vehicle. The rescue team used supports to stabilise the car and provided medical assistance to the injured individuals. The driver sustained injuries to his waist, while the female passenger complained of abdominal pain and hand injuries. Both victims were conscious and were subsequently taken to the hospital for further treatment.

The front of the involved private car suffered severe damage, with the hood crumpled inward. Law enforcement officers conducted an investigation and subjected the driver, Mr. Yeung, to a breathalyser test. The test results indicated alcohol levels above the legal limit. Following the investigation, Mr. Yeung was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.
