    At least 10 people were hurt in a traffic accident on Monday morning when an out-of-control taxi crashed into a crossing.

    The smash, which police thought could have been caused by a brake fault, happened in Aberdeen, on the south of Hong Kong Island, at about 9.10am. Tang Chi-lap, an inspector with the police’s Special Investigation Team, said the 70-year-old taxi driver had been carrying four passengers to Queen Mary Hospital in Pok Fu Lam when the accident happened.

    The taxi travelled downhill along Aberdeen Reservoir Road before hitting the traffic island at the junction with Aberdeen Main Road. “The driver alleged the braking system was out of order and he lost control of the taxi. It rushed down the slope and hit the railing,” Tang said. Photos taken at the scene showed two people lying on the ground at a crossing, with blood on the pavement.  Metal railings surrounding parts of the crossing appeared to have been mangled. Two ambulances were sent to the site, the force said. 

    The three men and seven women injured, aged between 19 and 76, included the taxi driver and his four passengers. The others were pedestrians. All were conscious after the accident and were sent to Queen Mary Hospital. By the afternoon, two elderly victims were in intensive care, one with a head injury and the other with a broken arm. Yu Wei, who worked at a butcher’s shop on the corner of Lok Yeung Street and Aberdeen Main Road, said he saw four people lying on the ground after he heard a loud crash and turned to look. “There were screams and I saw a lot of blood. There was a woman lying on the ground, completely motionless,” he said. Yip Kai-wai was at the 7-Eleven across from the crash site. He heard a loud bang and went out to see what happened. “I saw the driver sitting outside 7-Eleven. He had hurt his head and medical staff were treating him,” he said. Yip had heard an unhurt passenger, a young woman, talking to police about what happened and saying she thought the crash happened because of a faulty brake. Police said the driver, who had been driving taxis for almost 40 years, was on a morning shift and started work at 5am.

    Actress Fala Chen stepped out of the media glare in 2014 when she enrolled in the well-known The Juilliard School in New York. But last Saturday (May 18), Chen was once again in the spotlight when she married technology entrepreneur Emmanuel Straschnov in Paris. She met the Frenchman while she was pursuing a four-year Master of Fine Arts in Drama degree at Juilliard.

    Chen, who first cut her teeth with Hong Kong broadcaster TVB, graduated last year. Chen, 37, celebrated her big day in Paris by posting: "Thank you everyone for attending my wedding on May 18, creating special memories for us. "I'm lucky to have you in our lives, and especially grateful to have my parents' and Emmanuel's love." Her husband, who has worked in China, spoke at the wedding in Mandarin, promising to take care of her forever.

    It is her second marriage. She split up with businessman Daniel Sit in 2013. He told the media that he wished her well but added that he would not send her a gift or attend the Paris wedding.  Meanwhile, Chen looks set to stay in the spotlight, given that she has joined a stellar cast, including Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, to shoot HBO mini-series The Undoing.

    Police are on the hunt for a man who has been accused of pouring kerosene on his girlfriend and threatening to burn her alive after she was found lying naked in front of a high school in Tai Po. HK01 reported that at around 10:30am this morning, a teacher spotted

    , drenched in a liquid, with an injury to her arm and red marks on her face. A preliminary investigation by officers found that the woman lived across the street from the school at Tai Yee House, one of the housing blocks within the Tai Yuen housing estate. Neighbors reported that the woman lived with her boyfriend, a man in his 30s surnamed Man.

    The pair were reportedly having an argument, which culminated in Man allegedly dousing the woman with kerosene and threatening to set her on fire. The woman then rushed out of the apartment and ended up outside the school, about 100 meters away from the apartment. Officers at the scene couldn’t find any kerosene at the apartment, and Man was nowhere to be found. Police have classified the case as assault and criminal intimidation.

    The final film of the franchise, Avengers: Endgame, was released in cinemas in the UK on Thursday and is three hours long

    A man has reportedly been beaten up outside a cinema after loudly revealing the plot of the new Avengers film to queuing fans who hadn't yet seen it.

    , and shows him sitting down on a blood-spattered pavement. Cinemagoers eagerly queuing to see the new film were said to have been furious as the man shouted out spoilers of the final Avengers film. 

    The film is the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War and is the culmination of 21 feature films and 11 years of production. The Russo Brothers, who directed the film, wrote an open letter to fans to deter them from ruining the plot to other movie buffs. In a post on Twitter they said: 'To the greatest fans in the world, this is it. This is the end. 'The end of an unprecedented narrative mosaic spanning eleven years and eleven franchises. 'When you see Endgame in the coming weeks, please don't spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn't want it spoiled for you. 'Remember, Thanos still demands your silence. 'As always, good luck and happy viewing.' The pair singed off the letter and wrote a hashtag at the bottom - #DontSpoilTheEndgame.

    After five minutes of the film was reportedly leaked online, the directors thought it was time to speak directly to their fans and used the threat of fictitious supervillain Thanos in an effort to stop any further spoilers being released.
