TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — One person was killed and six were injured in a major traffic collision on the Changhua section of National Freeway No. 1 (Sun Yat-sen Freeway) Saturday morning (Nov. 2).

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.
