A minibus driver was arrested for dangerous driving causing death after his vehicle killed a woman jaywalker in Western early yesterday. The 72-year-old driver was granted police bail pending further investigations. He will have to report back to police in January. The 40-year-old victim was apparently rushing to work when she tried to cross six-lane Pokfulam Road instead of using the subway to get to the other side, a police spokesman said. The accident, involving the Causeway Bay-bound minibus, happened at 1.30am. The green-topped minibus, which had no passengers aboard, knocked the woman down as it neared the junction of Pokfulam Road and Pokfield Road. The woman, who was on her way to work in a convenience store in Chi Fu Fa Yuen, was taken unconscious to Queen Mary Hospital, where she was declared dead just before 2am. 'The victim was pushed for about 10 metres before falling onto the carriageway and the minibus travelled further before it came to a stop,' the officer said. The minibus left two 15-metre-long skid marks and suffered damage to its windscreen. 'At this stage, no evidence shows the speed of the minibus exceeded the legal limit,' another officer said. He said it appeared the victim had crossed the slow and middle lanes before being hit by the vehicle in the fast lane. Police have asked witnesses to call 3106 8848. A government source said the Transport Department favoured increasing the number of demerit points for running a red light from three to five, instead of a previous suggestion of eight, after consulting public transport bodies. The source also said the number of red-light cameras would be increased until at least 50 per cent of camera boxes were fitted with a camera.
