Taipei, Sept. 8 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Tuesday that a Taiwanese woman has been killed in a car crash in New Zealand, while a Taiwanese man accompanying her was injured.
The ministry said it will help their family members to travel there to handle their affairs.
It said the accident took place a day earlier in a remote mountainous area. The man called Taiwan’s representative office in New Zealand, which in turn called police to deal with the matter.
The Otago Daily Times, a New Zealand newspaper, said the accident took place in Haast Pass, a mountain pass in the Southern Alps of the South Island. [FULL STORY]
