The Taiwan High Court on Tuesday reversed a district court ruling and ordered the Yonghe District Office to pay NT$5.98 million (US$192,562) to the family of a woman who was killed in a motorcycle crash in 2014.
The compensation is to go to the husband of the woman, surnamed Kao (高), and their three children, the High Court said.
Kao was riding on Huanhe East Road, Sec 2, beneath the Yungfu Bridge in New Taipei City’s Yonghe District (永和) on the evening of Oct. 21, 2014, when loose cabling hanging from the bridge snagged the scooter’s handlebars, pulling it into the path of a vehicle traveling in the same direction, a police report said at the time.
She died of her injuries in a hospital the following morning. [FULL STORY]
