He was crossing the road in the Da’an District in Taipei when a Porsche crashed into him, and the impact was so significant that Porsche’s front bumper was dented badly.

The flight attendant was rushed to the hospital and later declared dead despite the doctors’ best efforts to resuscitate him.

According to Taiwan News, the Porsche driver, a 52-year-old man identified as Hsiang, had reportedly admitted to drinking a “few glasses of red wine” with his friends earlier that night.

ETToday reported that the driver has a history of drink driving offences.

His breathalyser test showed that his blood alcohol level was 0.58mg/l, exceeding the local legal limit by 0.15mg.

Hsiang had believed that he was sober to drive, and blamed the accident on the “dark and rainy” conditions, adding that the victim had dashed across the road suddenly.

According to Yahoo News, United Airlines is liaising with the local authorities to fly the deceased’s remains back to Singapore.

The authorities in Taipei are currently investigating the incident.
