(CNN)A 140-meter (459-foot) bridge has collapsed in northeast Taiwan, sending an oil tanker in the water and killing at least two people in fishing boats below.
According to Taiwan’s state-run Central News Agency, the truck fell onto a number of fishing boats and sparked a fire.
At least 12 people were injured, the Yilan County Fire Bureau said, with rescue operations continuing in the evening. Two dead bodies had been found at 8 p.m. local time, CNA reported.
“We hope everyone can be safely rescued in the shortest amount of time,” Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen said, according to CNA.
Wang said the cause of the collapse was being investigated.
