A plane goes down in Taiwan... narrowly missing cars on a highway.

FOX's David Piper has the details.

Dramatic video footage from an approaching car captured the last moments of the TransAsia Airways plane before it crashed.

The aircraft, veering wildly, clips a bridge, hitting a taxi on it before smashing into a river.

The plane, which had just taken off from a Taipei airport, broke up when it hit the water, leaving half of its fuselage submerged.

Rescuers were quickly on the scene and have cut the plane open to try to save several people still trapped inside.
