Chan is a crane operator. One day, while operating the crane to put up a big signboard along a busy road, the ropes holding the signboard gave way. The signboard hit into a car that was being driven by Alias. Alias was badly injured. Alias did not follow the instructions of Chanâ€™s assistant to stop about 50 feet away while Chan was pulling-up the signboard. Instead, Alias inched his way towards the crane as he was in a hurry to reach his office to meet his boss for a meeting.
