A hawker who was hit by a truck while fleeing hawker-control officers three years ago is launching a lawsuit in the High Court seeking damages. Without specifying the amount of the claim, solicitors for Tony Pang filed a writ on Tuesday. He is suing the truck driver and owner for damages, alleging negligent driving, and a former hawker-control officer and the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department.
