Twenty-five people were injured - one critically - in accidents in Tai Po, Sham Shui Po and Lok Ma Chau yesterday. The first crash happened when a car, minibus and truck collided in the New Territories-bound lanes of the Tolo Highway in Tai Po at 3.45am. The car stalled after hitting a patch of water in the third lane, and the minibus behind it swerved into the fourth lane and stalled. 'A lorry in the fourth lane failed to brake in time and crashed into the back of the minibus before toppling onto one side,' a police spokesman said. The minibus was pushed forward, hitting the car. The truck driver, 53, and his female passenger, 47, had to be cut free. Eleven minibus passengers were injured, but its driver, 57, was unhurt. The driver of the car, 22, was unhurt. All 13 injured were taken to Prince of Wales Hospital, where the truck driver was in critical condition. His passenger and four men were in stable condition, while the others were discharged after treatment. In a separate case, two delivery trucks and a taxi collided, injuring six people in Tai Po Road, Sham Shui Po, at about 9am. The six men were treated at Caritas Medical Centre. The third accident happened at 12.10pm when a van and car collided at the corner of Castle Peak Road and Kwu Tung Road in Lok Ma Chau. Two men and four women aged 62 to 83 from the van suffered minor injuries. They were treated at Tuen Mun and North District hospitals.
