HONG KONG (AP) — Four passenger buses and a truck have collided near a Hong Kong road tunnel and 87 people were injured, including children. Most of the injuries were minor. The accident occurred after midday on Friday near a tunnel entrance on Tseung Kwan O Road in Lam Tin, a residential area in Kowloon. Scores of firefighters, paramedics and police rushed to the scene. Several people lay on stretchers and at least one passenger was seen being helped out of a vehicle. Senior inspector Lee Pok-kit said a taxi carried out a “careless lane change” and the other vehicles could not stop in time, causing the collision.
