A bus driver died at the scene but no other casualties were reported after a tour bus rear-ended a truck, which in turn plowed into other vehicles, on Freeway No. 2 in Taoyuan this morning.
A total of 6 vehicles were involved in the accident.
The driver’s compartment bore the brunt of the impact. Firefighters found the 58 year-old driver trapped and “obviously dead” when they arrived at the scene of the accident.
The bus was carrying 5 passengers en route to Taipei Taoyuan International Airport when the accident occurred at around 10:15am. A shuttle bus was sent to pick the travelers up so they could make their flights.
