The mother of a quadriplegic struck a deal with a driver yesterday to end her $35 million claim for her son's injuries inflicted almost five years ago. Tung Ki-kwong, then 32, was crossing the eastbound side of Wong Chuk Hang Road at 2pm on December 3, 1995. He had crossed the first two of three lanes, reaching the fast lane when he was hit by a car driven by Yip Siu-lun. 'He was hit in the legs and thrown on to the front windscreen before he became airborne and somersaulted,' said Ronald Tang, counsel for the plaintiff. Mr Tung, who was mildly mentally retarded and had worked in a Hong Kong Society for the Blind sheltered workshop, was made a quadriplegic in the accident. His mother, Tam Chun, brought the action against Mr Yip for $34.89 million, but lawyers for Mr Yip estimated the damages at $5.3 million. The parties were scheduled to go for trial before Mr Justice Azizul Suffiad in the Court of First Instance yesterday morning. They reached an out-of-court settlement which the judge approved. Details of the settlement were not disclosed.
