An airport-bound bus veered out of control and overturned on the North Lantau Highway yesterday, leaving 15 passengers injured and blocking traffic for two hours. The driver of the 56-seat vehicle, carrying about 18 employees of the Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company, is thought to have lost control while trying to avoid a car that switched lanes. The car did not stop after the accident, which happened at 6am. Eight of the injured were taken to Princess Margaret Hospital; three were in stable condition last night after being moved out of intensive care. Seven were treated at Yan Chai Hospital and discharged. The 52-year-old driver was not hurt. A passenger, surnamed Fung, said the situation was chaotic, with the bus swaying from side to side. 'I'm lucky,' he said. 'I only have minor cuts on my shoulders. But some of them bumped their heads.' A spokesman for the bus company, Kwoon Chung Motors, said the bus had been tested for safety earlier this month and the driver had at least 10 years of driving experience. Police are also investigating another traffic accident, on the Gascoigne Road flyer in Yau Ma Tei, which killed a 22-year-old driver. The vehicle, delivering fresh fish, was believed to have crashed into a central divider and gone out of control near Prosperous Gardens. It was travelling south towards Tsim Sha Tsui at 6am. The driver, who was trapped inside the cab, was already in a coma when rescue workers reached him. He was certified dead half an hour later at Kwong Wah Hospital. The Special Investigation Team of Kowloon West traffic unit is looking for witnesses.
