Preliminary data based on the notification from the Hong Kong authorities:

Shortly after Aircraft 1 was given take-off clearance by Air Traffic Control (ATC), the pilot of Aircraft 2 informed ATC that it was crossing the same runway and had not yet completely vacated the runway. Upon receiving information from Aircraft 2, ATC immediately instructed Aircraft 1 to stop and Aircraft 1 aborted the take-off. Aircraft 2 then continued to cross the runway while Aircraft 1 followed ATC instructions to vacate and line up the runway again for another take-off.
