A CAR park attendant who allegedly smashed a $200,000 Alfa Romeo car left for him to park, leaving it with a scrap value of just $7,000, is being sued for damages. Car owner Cheung Hing also named the owner of the car park, the Kowloon Tsai Home Owners Association, as a defendant in his writ filed with the Supreme Court. The car park was situated on the first floor of a building at Cambridge Road, Kowloon Tong, and the parking fee was $1 per hour. Users were required to leave the car ignition keys with the attendants to enable them to move the vehicles about. On June 25 this year, Mr Cheung's wife, Nancy So Ngar-cheung, was using the car and entrusted the vehicle and keys to attendant Chan Tat-leung, it is pleaded. According to the writ, while Mr Chan was parking the car it struck a pillar before hitting an adjacent car. It then smashed into and knocked down a parapet of the car park at high speed and eventually crashed into a tennis court adjoining the ground floor of the building, it is pleaded. It is the plaintiff's case that the incident was caused by the negligence of Mr Chan and, as a result, the car was damaged beyond economical repair and was considered as a constructive total loss by a professional valuer. Mr Cheung is claiming $217,988 damages from Mr Chan and the Kowloon Tsai Home Owners Association, including the loss of the vehicle and the loss of use of it from June 25 but less the $7,000 scrap value for it.
