Careful out on those Hong Kong roads, Coconauts with cars.

The dangers of city driving were on display, again, this Easter weekend, with a dash cam video showing the moment a minibus plowed into a car containing a family of four as it passed through an intersection in Kowloon Tong on Sunday.

The family were heading south on Waterloo Road when, at about 4pm, the minibus turned across the traffic to enter Junction Road and slammed into the car’s side, spinning it 180 degrees, according to Apple Daily

According to the newspaper, which has uploaded a clip of the collision, the driver of the car, a 44-year-old man surnamed Liu, was unhurt. His 30-year-old wife surnamed Cheung, however, was taken to hospital with a knee injury, as were his two sons, aged to 2 and 3, who were also hurt.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident, believed to be caused by the failure to abide by a red light.

Though the turning signal for the bus isn’t visible in the video, it appears the family had the green.
