Police in Hakodate, Hokkaido, arrested a 43-year-old man who drove his car into two children and an adult walking on a sidewalk in front of a daycare center on Friday morning.
According to police, Takashi Nakamura drove his car onto the sidewalk and hit from behind a one-year-old boy, his three-year-old sister and their 23-year-old father at around 11:45 a.m. The Hokkaido Shimbun reported that Nakamura then got out of his car and punched the children's father who was already down on the ground.
Nakamura then fled on foot but was apprehended by police about 500 meters from the scene.
Police said the father and his children were taken to hospital but their injuries are not life-threatening.
Nakamura was quoted by police as saying he was stressed out and didn't care who he hit with his car.© Japan Today
