KMB Route 872. Volvo Super Olypmian Wright Explorer.

To be specific, the vehicle series number is AVW78 (entered service in 2004-5) and its licence plate is LX9991.  Those who can read Chinese might want to check out the specs: http://www.buscess.com/chassis/view/LX9991/cp1

The crash took place on a rather straight section of Tai Po Road right besides Tai Po Kau Park, in a place that has seen its fair share of accidents. http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/health-environment/article/2132874/passengers-claim-bus-driver-was-throwing-tantrum

I know MTR is doing signal upgrades on some of the older lines to something similar to ATO (like TTC) so I'm wondering how do they do it without major closures like what TTC is doing almost every weekend?
