Five cars were involved in a chain collision at 10 a.m. Saturday morning near the Changhua Road section of National Freeway No. 1. Among them was a northbound vehicle driven by a 27-year-old man surnamed Hsieh (謝), his wife, a 28-year-old nurse identified as Peng (彭), their 8-month-old infant, and two family friends.
Peng died from her injuries after being taken to hospital, and her daughter remains in critical condition, reported CNA.
Hsieh’s mother tearfully told CNA that she had been hoping to celebrate her daughter-in-law’s birthday. The medical staff of two local hospitals spent Saturday night caring for the injured.
