A passenger who suffered serious injuries when a bus crashed into a stationary goods vehicle is suing the driver and Kowloon Motor Bus for more than $4.5 million. Lee Wing-fong, 40, has been unable to return to work as a decorator and suffers pain from injuries to his hip and knee, says a High Court writ. He was a passenger on a bus travelling along Castle Peak Road towards Tsuen Wan on September 24, 1994. The writ says the bus crashed into the back of the goods vehicle, which had been parked on the inside lane. Mr Lee spent a month in hospital receiving treatment for injuries which included a dislocated hip. The writ says he suffers from hip pain, especially after walking or standing continuously for 30 minutes. His lower limbs are weak and his right knee unstable when he runs or climbs stairs. These conditions are said to be permanent. At Tsuen Wan Court on January 7 last year, the bus driver, Leung Chi-lam, pleaded guilty to careless driving, the writ says. It accuses the driver of failing to keep a proper lookout, driving too fast and losing control of the bus. The writ also says Mr Leung failed to stop, slow down or swerve in order to avoid the collision. Mr Lee is claiming $3.39 million for loss of future earnings, $338,000 for loss of earnings since the accident, $300,000 of loss of earning capacity and $500,000 for pain, suffering and loss of amenities.
