Green mini bus accident in HK


Killed 4 passengers, 14 injured at the scene yesterday, it was caught on car cam. My dad had similar accident 4 years ago, but he was clipped by a taxi and not a truck.

That's scary. Most of these MB drivers are fucking idiots who don't know how to drive. It's not as bad in the city, as most accidents will just be low speed fender benders [I've been in one of those already]. Out in NT where there are highways is when driver incompetence causes fatalities like this. You also get a lot of other incompetent truck drivers who aren't just stupid, but don't give a fuck about following rules of the road.

Really scary video, RIP to the victims... fuck

it's been awhile since i was in hk but my first and last ride in one of those minibuses still stays vivid in my memory. the one i was riding in was drafting another like it was NASCAR as both buses blew through a red light...
