A MAN who was badly injured in a head-on car crash in the Aberdeen Tunnel is suing the other driver for $356,989. In a writ filed with the Supreme Court, Anthony Wareham, 47, claims the collision was caused by the negligence of taxi driver Lau Tin-ting. Mr Lau has already been convicted of careless driving. According to his statement of claim, Mr Wareham was driving a Mercedes-Benz through the tunnel towards Happy Valley at about 5.40 am on May 3 last year. He saw Mr Lau's taxi approaching fast from the other direction, veering from side-to-side across the double white lines, he says. Mr Wareham states he slowed down and drove his car as near as possible to the left of the tunnel. But the taxi crossed the double white lines and collided with the front off side of his car, crushing it against the tunnel wall, he claims. After being freed from the car, Mr Wareham was taken to hospital with a broken rib, right ankle, right arm and right leg. According to his statement, he was also badly scratched, suffered a black eye and a forehead cut which exposed his skull bone. Mr Wareham argues that, because of his injuries, he now has trouble walking and cannot pursue his leisure interests of tennis and squash. He is claiming $356,989 special damages, which include medical fees and other damages.
