The owner of a construction truck that caused Taiwan’s worst rail accident in decades, killing 48 people, apologized in tears while being led away from his home by police April 4. The unmanned truck’s emergency brake was not properly engaged, according to the government’s disaster relief center. Lee Yi-hsiang’s vehicle slid down onto the tracks April 3 from a nearby construction site on the mountainous coast of eastern Hualien county. The truck was hit by a passenger train carrying 494 people, which derailed just before entering a tunnel, crushing many passengers inside the mangled train carriages. At least 198 people were injured. “I have caused a serious accident on the Taiwan Railway Administrations’ Taroko train No. 480 during this year’s Tomb Sweeping holiday, causing deaths and injuries, to this I express my remorse and my sincerest apologies,” said Lee. Train travel is popular during the public holiday, when families visit their hometowns to pay their respects to their ancestors at their gravesites.
