A minibus driver died after the vehicle rolled forward and pinned him underneath in Ho Man Tin Saturday night, as he forgot to put the handbrake on after getting off. The accident happened around 10.45 pm near Sheung Lok Street and Sheung Wo Street as the green minibus skipped forward and knocked down the 75-year-old driver, surnamed Chong. A taxi driver, surnamed Lee, said he brought food for Chong and arranged the pick up on Sheung Wo Street. He said Chong parked it at the back of the cab and met him next to the taxi, but the minibus suddenly rolled forward. Chong tried to stop the minibus with his bare hands and was eventually pinned underneath the vehicle.
