Car accident outside Hong Kong Jewish Community Centre E-mail

Police are investigating an incident that happened on Shabbat morning 20 October during Kiddush luncheon at the Ohel Leah Synagogue (OLS), outside the Hong Kong Jewish Community Centre (JCC).

According to eyewitnesses and police statements, a 60-year-old female driver of a private car lost control of her vehicle on Robinson Road, tragically hitting two pedestrians – a mother and her young son – then collided with another car that then mounted the curb and careened into the fence near the OLS gate.

After that second car hit the wall, smoke poured out of the engine and the car caught fire. The driver was pulled out of the burning vehicle by a security guard at the JCC and was safe. The incident was the first ever involving a car mounting the pavement next to the OLS gate.

The two pedestrians who had been hit by the first car were severely injured and were taken to hospital.
