Hsinchu: What would have been a normal everyday kind of car accident in Taiwan made the headlines today when a driver trying to avoid another driver reversing into oncoming traffic, not only failed to avoid the reversing vehicle, but careered into a 9 meter deep shaft in the middle of the road.
The car landed upside down in water, but rescuers managed to save the man.
The man, who suffers disabilities caused by childhood polio, was taken by surprise when a woman reversed into oncoming traffic, completely disregarding other road users. Rescuers fitted the man with a harness and lifted him out of the shaft.
