A driver lost control of his vehicle on an elevated expressway in New Taipei City this morning, and his car bounced over the guardrail and landed in a park more than 20 meters below.

At around 6:55am, a 36-year-old man named Chen was weaving between cars at high speed on a curved section of Provincial Highway 65, between Wugu and Banqiao, when he lost control of his Subaru Forester SUV.

The car slid to the right until the tires hit the traffic separator dividing the four car lanes and the motorcycle lane. Upon hitting the traffic divider, the vehicle was sent airborne, hitting a light pole before flying over the guardrail and falling into the riverside park in Xinzhuang District.

The vehicle landed beside a roller-skating rink, but fortunately no people were present at the time.    [FULL  STORY]
