A CHINA Motor Bus (CMB) driver may face disciplinary action after an elderly woman yesterday fell out of his vehicle. And according to the company that may consist of sending him back to driving school. Lai Yuk-chi, 57, stopped the bus after hearing passengers yelling. Leung Chi-fan, 68, who had just got on the double-decker, had fallen back on to the road at the junction of King's Road and Tong Chong Street while trying to find a seat. Police believe thedoors of the No 8 bus, travelling along King's Road to Siu Sai Wan, were not properly closed after letting off passengers at a previous stop. The bus driver allegedly told police he might not have pressed the door control button hard enough. Ms Leung was taken to Eastern Hospital and discharged after treatment for minor injuries to her leg and the back of her head. The part-time Quarry Bay restaurant worker said no one had warned the driver of the open doors. 'I was looking for a seat when the bus started moving and I felt unsteady on my feet,' she said. 'When I approached the rear door which had not been completely closed, I tried to balance myself by holding on to a hand-rail. 'But the bus suddenly slowed and I hit my head against the rail. 'I lost my balance and fell through the door down on to the street,' she said. Now Ms Leung hopes CMB will compensate her. The driver was interviewed by CMB's claims department to establish whether the accident was caused by human error or mechanical fault. CMB traffic manager James Sykes said disciplinary action would be taken against the driver if the accident was found to be his fault. 'If it's really serious, he'll go back into the driving school,' he said. Mr Sykes said the company carried out a safety inspection every month on its buses.
