The car smashed into a pretective fence on the Taichung stretch of Taiwan’s National Highway  and spun out to the other side of the highway and the car stopped horizontally between outer lane and the road shoulder. According to witness, her Mini Cooper was travelling at around 120-130km/h.

The collision cause the Mini Cooper tailstock serious hollow aberration. The front airbag failed to deploy during the collission occured as airbags are not designed to deploy in rear impact collission.
