Police have still not traced the driver of a truck that collided with insurance executive Randolph Wein, killing him more than three months ago. The 49-year-old German, the former chief executive of the bankrupt Australian insurance giant HIH, died of internal injuries after his motorcycle and a lorry collided as he rode to work along Gloucester Road, Wan Chai, on October 8. At the time, legislator for the insurance industry Bernard Charnwut Chan raised the possibility of foul play with police, prompted by calls from insurance industry colleagues who believe it was not an accident. Now, however, after having read three separate witness reports from two taxi drivers and a pedestrian on a flyover, Mr Chan is convinced that Wein's death was a traffic accident. 'Three people saw Wein's motorbike sway towards the truck rather than the truck deliberately hitting him in a hit-and-run,' said Mr Chan. 'I am satisfied he hit the truck and it was an accident. 'Based on the three witnesses it's quite unlikely it was caused by deliberate intent. But police can't close the case because they can't find the driver.' Mr Chan said witnesses saw the lorry stop several blocks away, with the driver stepping out and looking back as if to say, 'Was it me?'. The legislator speculated that the driver may have been too scared to call police. He admitted that one witness described the truck's colour as red, and another as blue. 'Many of my industry peers still think it was foul play,' he said. 'But there is no evidence.' After the fatal crash, the truck was seen crossing from the right lane into the left for the cross-harbour tunnel, but with traffic heavy, police failed to catch it. Police confirm the case is still classified as a traffic accident. A spokesman said: 'We haven't arrested anyone and we never upgraded it to a murder investigation.' Wein's death came the day before he was due to return to Australia where he had been a key witness at the inquiry into the collapse of HIH. The executive had been working closely with HIH investigators and was regarded as an important witness, singled out for praise by the Royal Commission. The Australian insurance conglomerate collapsed in March 2001, with debts of A$5.3 billion (HK$24.7 billion).
