Late last night, near midnight, the 54-year-old driver of a green minibus parked at the Sai Kung Pier Minibus Terminal in Fuk Man Road lost control as he was moving the bus. The minibus (Bus 74) rushed forward, jumped the kerb and crashed into the 7-11 store, damaging its roof canopy.
Although no-one was injured in the accident, a 52-year-old shop assistant was treated for shock. A number of passers-by were also lucky not to be hit by the bus.
Police are investigating the cause of the accident. The police did not rule out that the minibus brake was not engaged.
