An expat banker in Hong Kong was arrested after allegedly killing a security guard when he crashed his Ferrari in a car park.

Police said 48-year-old Robert Ebert was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving causing death. They explained that the driver lost control at the entrance of the car park before colliding with another vehicle and then ramming into the 53-year-old security guard who was stood by the water barriers. They added that after sustaining serious head and shoulders injuries the man was pronounced dead shortly after.

Reports said that Ebert, Deutsche Bank’s head of equities for Asia Pacific, crashed his vehicle early on Tuesday morning near the bank’s office at the International Commerce Centre (ICC) tower.

According to the South China Morning Post, the car was purchased for HK$4.5m (US$585,000) in 2013. Ebert was reportedly bailed without charge.

Images from the newspaper Apple Daily show officers inspecting the black Ferrari, while footage on the publication’s website showed the motorist avoiding reporters’ cameras.
