Image of Asia: Plane clips taxi on Taiwan road before crash

In this combination of photos taken from video, a TransAsia Airways plane banks sharply, then clips a road and a vehicle before careening into a shallow river in Taipei, Taiwan, after takeoff Wednesday. The dramatic footage aired by Taiwanese television station TVBS came from an employee's car dashboard camera. The driver and passenger in the taxi struck by the wing were injured, and rescuers were searching in the water and the plane fuselage for people missing in the crash.
