A Taiwanese flight with 58 people aboard has gone horribly wrong.
The aircraft went sideways, clipped the barrier of a busy motorway before it plunged into a river shortly after takeoff from the capital of Taiwan, Taipei, killing at least 12 people.
The plane’s wing also hit a taxi, injuring the driver, on the motorway as it flew into the river.
Rescue crews, made up of 165 people in rubber rafts, clustered around the exposed area of the mostly sunken plane, which was on its side in the Keelung River.
They feared many of the passengers and crew members of the TransAsia Airways flight remained trapped inside.
Civil aviation officials said the flight took off at 10.53 am (local time) and lost contact with controllers two minutes later.
No comment has been made at this point in regards to what may have caused the plane to crash.
