Taxi in Korea plunges from 5th floor, killing 1, injuring 8

A bizarre car accident left one dead and five injured, after a taxi crashed through a wall and fell 5 floors onto a roadway below in Busan, South Korea, yesterday, December 30.

According to Korean news agencies, a 70-year-old driver apparently missed a turn, and drove straight into a wall marked with the word “exit” on the 5th floor of a carpark at the Homeplus store in Yeonje District at around 12:30 pm, Thursday.

The taxi crashed through the wall and plunged onto a roadway below crowded with cars waiting at a red light. The taxi driver was killed in the impact, and eight people on the ground were injured. Fortunately, none of the injuries were life threatening, according to reports.
