The driver was heading to Ma On Shan when he hit two people who were waiting for buses along Tai Chung Kiu Road. His car damaged some fences and minibus stops before it was stopped by a footbridge. A man, 20, and a woman, 61, had leg injuries and were taken to Prince of Wales Hospital. The driver was granted HK$5,000 bail.

Sergeant cleared of sexual claims

Police said an investigation into a station sergeant in the Lok Ma Chau division had concluded no women officers had been sexually harassed, and so no officer had been punished. A Chinese-language newspaper yesterday quoted a woman officer as saying she had been touched several times by a married sergeant in his 40s; the paper also said at least three other officers had fallen victim to him. The division's management received a complaint in May, police said.
