A woman was trapped under a taxi and had to be freed by firefighters after the vehicle mounted a pavement and hit her in North Point on Monday.

The driver, 74, lost control of the cab while travelling along Tanner Road, soon after 2pm.

The taxi veered off course and knocked down the pedestrian, 32, outside the car park of Island Place residential estate, police said.

“The woman was trapped and later freed by firefighters,” a police spokesman said.

The victim, who was unconscious, was sent to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan.

Police said the driver and three female passengers age 39, 60 and 89 suffered minor injuries in the incident, and were also sent to the same hospital for treatment.

As of 6pm, no one has been arrested over the case.
