TAIPEI, Taiwan, Aug. 3 (UPI) — The American Institute in Taiwan said Wednesday one of its official vehicles was involved in a traffic accident in Taipei in which a motorcyclist died.

AIT Director William A. Stanton was a passenger in the vehicle when the accident occurred Wednesday and was not injured, Taiwan’s Central News Agency reported.

Officials said they suspect the motorcyclist was thrown into the path of the AIT vehicle after the motorcycle collided with a taxi. The cyclist was propelled into the center lane, where he was struck by a truck, officials said.

The American Institute in Taiwan is a non-profit, public corporation established by the U.S. government to serve its interests in Taiwan.
