Things went from bad to worse for a 63-year-old taxi driver last night.

After initially losing control of his taxi, the cabbie looked like he was about to get back on track.

Then along came a minibus, which t-boned the cab in a collision caught on CCTV.

Video published by Apple Daily this morning shows the whole incident, which occurred along the West Kowloon Corridor towards Tsim Sha Tsui

After skidding and drifting along the wet highway at 8pm, the taxi driver can be seen attempting a three-point turn on what looks like an empty highway.

Suddenly, a red-topped minibus comes from out of nowhere and rams into the left-hand side of the taxi.

According to the newspaper, the 63-year-old taxi driver surnamed Chan told the police that this all happened because he was trying to avoid a car that had cut in front of him.

CCTV footage from the evening proved otherwise.

Chan was sent to hospital after complaining about back pain. He and a 70-year-old minibus driver surnamed Ng took an on-the-spot breathalyser test where police confirmed that neither drivers had consumed alcohol.
