Police in Yokohama said Monday they have arrested a 21-year-old man over a hit-and-run incident that killed a 33-year-old man in Totsuka Ward early Sunday.
According to police, the victim, Kikuo Kitai, was walking along a road just before 2 a.m. when he was hit by a car. TBS reported that the driver, later identified as Shohei Ando, kept going and later abandoned his car on a road nearby. He then called police to falsely report that his car had been stolen.
Police said Ando admitted to hitting Kitai and said he fled the scene because he had been frightened.© Japan Today
