Four people were hurt in Hong Kong when two cars collided in Tsuen Wan on Thursday evening, with one vehicle mounting a pavement and pinning a pedestrian against a wall.
Firefighters were called in to free the 23-year-old pedestrian, surnamed Poon, who suffered injuries to her legs and waist. She was taken to Princess Margaret Hospital in Kwai Chung for treatment.
Police said they received a call for help at 7.05pm after a black car driven by a 39-year-old woman, surnamed Wong, crashed into another vehicle.
The two cars were travelling in opposite directions along Wing Shun Street in Tsuen Wan when Wong’s vehicle hit a white seven-seater, driven by a 45-year-old man surnamed Lee, as she was making a turn.
The seven-seater then mounted the pavement, where it pinned Poon against a wall.
Wong, along with two passengers, girls aged eight and nine, were taken to Yan Chai Hospital in Tsuen Wan. They suffered minor injuries, with the trio complaining of neck and chest pains.
The city has recently experienced several serious traffic accidents, with a taxi driver killed in a fiery collision involving three vehicles on Thursday morning.
In another incident on Tuesday, a taxi driver lost control of his vehicle, which then rammed into a wall at Prince Edward MTR station.
