Two lives were lost in a road accident in Miaoli County on Sunday. The victim Fu Pei-ling, who was eight months pregnant, was riding her scooter on her way back after bringing lunch to her husband when her motorbike was hit by an automobile, killing her and her baby on the spot.

The family is in mourning. The car was driving in the wrong lane when it crashed into Fu's motorbike. The driver, who was sober at the time of the accident, claimed he was trying to avoid another car but it is possible that he was trying to overtake a freight truck in front of him.

The victim and her husband just got married three months ago and were happily awaiting their first child. The widower, surnamed Lin, was in terrible grief as he wouldn't be able to meet his daughter.

Lin asked friends on Facebook to help him pick a name for his child. In the end, he had decided to name her "Si-pei," meaning "remembering Pei," referring to the name of his wife.
