November 27, 2021 One person died, and one was slightly injured, after the driver of an Audi R8 “supercar” lost control of the vehicle in wet and rainy conditions in New Taipei City. The 28-year-old driver, named Huang, was taking a 21-year-old female friend, named Weng, to have dinner in Taipei City when he lost control of the 602 horsepower performance coupe, and crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Kangning Street and Cuifeng Street in Xizhi District, shortly before 4:00 pm. Witnesses described hearing the engine roar before the car began to skid and go sideways on the rain-soaked road. Dashcam footage from another vehicle caught the dramatic moment the engine caught fire and quickly spread along a stream of leaking fuel just moments after the accident. Huang is seen crawling out of the passenger-side door before dragging the limp, unconscious Weng out of the burning wreck.
