A 63-year-old man died on Friday after he was trapped under a cement mixer that hit him in Yau Tong.
The fatal accident happened on Tung Yuen Street at around 12:20pm, when the vehicle reportedly knocked the man down while making a turn into a cement factory.
Police said the victim sustained serious head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 55-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving causing death.
It was the second deadly traffic accident involving a cement mixer in roughly three weeks.
In late September, a cement mixer truck plunged off a flyover in Cheung Sha Wan, which left the 67-year-old driver dead and four others injured.
