Fatal Hit-And-Run Footage Shows Suspect Inspecting Taxi As Victim Lies Dying

HONG KONG: Police here have released CCTV footage of a taxi driver inspecting damage to his vehicle moments after a 60-year-old man was fatally hit in the early hours of Saturday.

The victim was pushing a cart when he was hit by a vehicle at the junction of Prince Edward Road West and Kadoorie Avenue in Kowloon City at about 4am.

The black and white footage shows a taxi driver slowly stopping his car and then getting out of the vehicle to look at the spot where the injured man is thought to be lying.
