An Australian man has been arrested in Hong Kong after the driver of a taxi he was travelling in died following a crash, police said today.
The man, who was named by the Sunday Morning Post as 22-year-old Kelsey Michael Mudd, was held after the fatal crash early on Saturday morning, police said in a statement.
The Post, citing police sources, said there had been a dispute between the driver and Mudd before the incident in Hong Kong's Central district at 3:30 am.
The car smashed into the central railings and then hit three taxis travelling in the opposite direction, the police statement said.
The passenger then moved into the driver's seat and drove off on the wrong side of the road, before hitting another taxi, the statement added.
