The court ordered the driver returned to custody until his next appearance in December

Filipino driver R.M. Ducusin turned 40 on Friday, Oct 8, as he returned to Eastern Court to face a charge of “dangerous driving causing death” for running over an elderly local man in Wanchai in July.

Magistrate Andrew Mok adjourned the case until Dec 31 pending an alcohol test and medical reports on Ducusin, and for further investigation.

The defendant, who has a domestic helper visa, was returned to custody after the prosecution again opposed granting him bail.

Ducusin was arrested on Jul 28 after hitting Lee Kwok-leung, 69, on the westbound lane of Queen’s Road East near the junction of Amoy St. as he was driving his employer’s car.


The victim was rushed to Ruttonjee Hospital with multiple injuries and was certified dead at 9:47 am that day.

Ducusin's mother who works as a domestic helper for the same employer, has said she and her son were returning to Mid-Levels after buying food at the Wanchai Market when the incident happened.

She remembered hearing a thud and then her son saying, “Nay, may nasagasaan ako.”  (Ma, I ran over somebody.) She said the defendant looked dazed afterwards.

The elderly woman revealed Ducusin was celebrating his birthday that day.

She said she asked her employer to hire his son years ago, as he had a family with two young children.
