Costly move by man who tried to stop TV crew on accident site

A man who tried to stop a TV news crew from filming the scene of a car accident ended up paying for a broken camera.

The man was one of two passengers in a van which crashed in Waterloo Road in Kowloon Tong around midnight Tuesday.

The woman driver tried to switch lanes and lost control of the vehicle, clipping a roadside barrier before plowing into two taxis, Headline Daily reports.

The van toppled on its side but all three of its occupants were unhurt.

A taxi driver was sent to hospital with neck injury.

The man became irate when a TV crew began filming the accident site.

He called in a group of men who tried to hustle the news crew away.

One of his cohorts pulled a microphone from a camera and damaged it.

The man agreed to pay for the damage after police arrived.
