Deutsche Bank’s Ebert Said to Be Driver in Fatal Collision

Updated on

Rob Ebert, Deutsche Bank AG’s head of equities for Asia, Japan and Australia, was the driver of a car involved in a collision that killed a man in Hong Kong on Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Two calls to Ebert’s mobile phone weren’t answered, while Candice Sun, a Deutsche Bank spokeswoman, declined to comment.

Police are investigating an incident in Yau Ma Tei district on Tuesday morning that resulted in the death of a 53-year-old man, according to a statement on the police force’s website. A car driven by a 48-year-old “foreign man” collided with another car as it was entering a car park, before hitting barriers and the victim, according to the statement.

The 48-year-old was arrested for dangerous driving causing death, the police said. A police spokesman declined to provide the full name or occupation of the driver. The driver is now out on bail, pending the investigation, and needs to report back to police in mid-July, the police said in a subsequent e-mailed statement.

Apple Daily reported the incident earlier, naming Ebert as the driver of a Ferrari 458 Spider that collided with a Maserati exiting the car park.

Ebert was appointed to his current position last month. He joined Deutsche Bank in 1996 and was made Asia head of equity sales excluding Japan in 2010.
