A taxi collided with a Discovery Bay shuttle on Sunday evening.
The accident occured along Cheung Tung Road, near Pak Mong, half-way between the Tung Chung town proper and the Discovery Bay Tunnel in North Lantau at around 8pm last night, according to Radio Television Hong Kong.
A Discovery Bay DB01R bus was apparently on its way back from Tung Chung when it hit the taxi head-on. The collision trapped the taxi driver within his vehicle, who suffered serious injuries as a result. He was later transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital in Kwai Chung after rescuers retreived him from the wreckage.
Three people were injured on the shuttle, including the driver and two passengers. The three were brought to North Lantau Hospital in Tung Chung to be treated for minor injuries.
Police are still investigating what caused the accident.
