A taxi driver was hit and killed by a KMB bus while helping a passenger pick up goods samples in Cheung Sha Wan last year, a court was told yesterday. The 50-year-old bus driver, Wong Ton-fan, pleaded not guilty in the District Court yesterday to one count of dangerous driving causing death. The court was told taxi driver Chong Kai-man, 54, was thrown into the air after being hit by the bus that Wong was driving on April 30. A young pedestrian, Law Chi-chung, was also seriously injured while walking across the pedestrian crossing, the court heard. In her opening submission, prosecutor Alice Lee Sin-bing said Chong had picked up a passenger, Lee Kam-ha, at the airport before the accident. Ms Lee asked him to first stop at the Million Murray Building in Cheung Sha Wan to pick up some goods samples before going to Sha Tin. At about 12.40pm, Chong parked his taxi opposite the building and offered to help her collect the goods, the court heard. The prosecutor said Ms Lee heard a loud braking sound while waiting inside the taxi. She got out and saw Chong lying on the road near a KMB double-decker bus. The court heard Chong suffered serious head injuries and was certified dead before admission to the Caritas Medical Centre. Mr Law suffered from scratches and abrasions on his left forehead and cheek, and lost two teeth. The driver of a light goods vehicle, Chan Sun-hei, told the court he saw the KMB bus hit Chong. The hearing continues today before Judge Mary Yuen Lai-wah.
