An aspiring teenage model was killed by a suspected drink-driver in a horrifying crash as she rode her brand-new motorbike.
Kim Yeui-Hyun died at the scene of the collision, after she was thrown around 30 feet by the impact of the crash.
The 19-year-old’s helmet flew off during the crash in North Taiwan’s Taoyuan City, and she suffered fatal head injuries.
Dashcam footage captured the tragedy, which is believed to have happened after she ran a red light.
The teenager, who had just started university, was riding her new Kymco Quannon 150 back home at 11.50pm when the drink-driving suspect, Chen Bo-chi, slammed into her.
Dashcam footage shows Chen, 36, attempting a left turn when he slams into Kim’s bike, with both vehicles sustaining heavy damage.
Paramedics pronounced Kim dead at the scene, having suffered fatal head trauma.
Chen was found to be slightly over the legal alcohol limit and was detained shortly after.
Taiwanese modelling agency Eelin, who hosted a pageant with Kim in it this year, said they were ‘saddened by her loss’.
Police said Chen would be charged with dangerous driving as well as negligent manslaughter.
