A taxi driver was killed in a head-on smash with a container truck yesterday on the same flyover where five Environmental Protection Department employees died when their van hit a lorry in January last year. The mainland-bound container truck and the taxi collided in wet conditions on the Texaco Road flyover, Tsuen Wan, at 6.30am. A police officer said the taxi was pushed for about 20 metres. It took firefighters 30 minutes to get the taxi driver, Leung Ying-yeung, 54, out of the tangled wreckage. He was declared dead at Yan Chai Hospital. The 44-year-old truck driver was admitted to the hospital in a serious condition and was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving causing death. A spokeswoman for the Transport Department said: 'We will look into the report compiled by police over the cause of the incident and then we will consider whether it is necessary to implement other safety measures on the flyover. The measures might include laying anti-skid material and building a central divider.' After the January 1999 accident, only three extra road markings were put on the flyover to warn motorists it was a two-way flyover. The spokeswoman said the location was not a traffic black spot because there had been fewer than nine accidents in the past 12 months.
