A helicopter flew 15 people to three New Territories hospitals after a truck and minibus crashed near Fairview Park, Yuen Long, yesterday. The truck came to rest on the minibus, whose driver was trapped. He was later freed. Part of the San Tin Highway near Fung Kat Heung was closed and the Transport Department urged people to travel by railway when going to the northwest of the New Territories.
