A TransAsia Airways plane crashed in Taiwan Wednesday morning, and horrifyingly, the entire thing was caught on film.
The ATR-72 turbo-prop plane went down just moments after taking off from Taipei Songshan Airport — and crashed into a bridge before hitting the river.
According to the latest reports, there were 58 people on board the flight.
15 have been rescued from the river with 18 still unaccounted for. At least 25 are confirmed dead.
The dashboard cam of a motorist just yards from the crash caught the shocking moment on video (below):

Another tragic plane crash has occurred, this time off the coast of Taiwan.
TransAsia Flight GE222 was attempting to make an emergency landing when it crashed in the Penghu Island city of Magong. 51 or the 58 passengers and crew members were killed.
Pilots in the plane were reportedly trying to take the aircraft down safely due to bad weather caused by Typhoon Matmo, which slammed into the Asian nation on Wednesday. Civil aviation chief Shen Chi spoke about the crash today saying:
