A Hong Kong man was killed and his wife and another Hong Kong woman were injured, one critically, when a car carrying the three members of a Wing On Travel tour crashed in Taipei yesterday. Two Taiwanese women were also injured in the crash on the way to the popular Yangmingshan National Park during a free day on the tour. Witnesses saw the silver Toyota carrying the five uphill along Yangde Boulevard hit a power pole at high speed at 4.20pm. The 57-year-old driver, surnamed Tsui, died on the way to hospital. A Hong Kong woman surnamed Mok, 53, was taken to Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital in Taipei, where she had surgery and was in critical condition last night. Her 48-year-oldsister was taken to the same hospital with a broken right leg but her condition was not serious. The two Taiwanese women, surnamed Tsai, 56, and Lee, 50, suffered a head injury and a leg fracture and were taken to Taipei Veterans General Hospital and Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital respectively. Tsai's injury was not serious. The front of the car was severely damaged in the crash. Television news reports showed police officers spreading sand on spilled oil at the scene of the crash. Police said they found no skid marks and they believed the accident was the result of a driver unfamiliar with road conditions in the hilly area. Local media quoted witnesses as saying the car was travelling uphill at high speed when it crashed without any attempt to brake. A Wing On Travel spokeswoman said the three were members of a four-day tour that started on Friday. Yesterday was scheduled as a free day and the three had gone on an outing with local friends. The company had contacted the families and arranged to fly them to Taipei.
