A dashcam caught this shocking footage of a plane crashing in Taiwan

As the pilot of TransAsia flight GE 235 was losing control of his plane, someone — reportedly Twitter user @Missxoxo168 — was driving down the freeway. Her dashcam caught this shocking footage of the airplane falling out of the sky.

The airplane wound up in the Keelung River. At this time, at least 23 passengers are confirmed dead and about 20 remain unaccounted for.

The video shows a van being clipped by the airplane's wing as the plane flew over. Remarkably, the taxi driver and his passenger survived the encounter, according to the Straits Times.
