A man in Kaohsiung City suffered multiple injuries after crashing through a barrier and plummeting 10 meters onto a dry riverbed this morning.
Mr Lee, 34, is suspected of having tried to dodge a cat when he lost control of his car on Shuangyuan Bridge shortly before 8:00am.
Lee’s car skidded into the slow lane and hit a 20 centimeter high traffic separator, launching into the air and crashing through the bridge rails before landing on a sandbar below.
Firefighters stabilized Mr Lee before sending him to the Antai Memorial Hospital where Lee was treated for multiple fractures and broken teeth. Tests showed that Lee had not affected by alcohol at the time of the accident. [FULL STORY]
