A Hong Kong singer, identified by media reports as Sita Chan Hei-yi, died on Wednesday morning after crashing her car in Yau Ma Tei.
Chan, 26, was driving on the Hoi Po Road flyover when she lost control of her car and hit a kerb before crashing into a central divider.
She sustained serious injuries and was rushed to Kwong Wah Hospital, where she was certified dead shortly after 4am, a police report said.
Chan won best new female artist at the Ultimate Song Chart Awards in 2011. She was signed to Sun Entertainment Culture headed by entertainment mogul Paco Wong where she recorded two albums. She had minor roles in films Lan Kwai Fong 2 and Love in Time.
A photo of Chan was posted on her Facebook account at 9pm the previous evening, captioned “microphone test” and showed her in a recording studio.
“Life is so fragile, 11 hours ago she was still happily taking photos…rest in peace,” one fan wrote on Chan’s Facebook account.
Investigations will be conducted by the Special Investigation Team of Traffic, Kowloon West.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident or has any information to contact investigating officers at 2773 5281 or 2773 5288.
