A man was found dead after being run over by a car on a road in Mooka, Tochigi Prefecture, but police said Tuesday that he may have already been dead after being hit by another car earlier.
According to police, a 19-year-old man ran over the body of Atsushi Taguchi, 33, at around 3:30 a.m. Monday, Fuji TV reported. The driver stopped immediately and notified police. Taguchi was taken to hospital where he was confirmed dead.
However, since the body revealed skid marks from another car, Tochigi police said they believe another vehicle struck Taguchi first, and then kept going.
Police said they are examining surveillance camera footage to try and determine when Taguchi was hit and by what vehicle or vehicles.© Japan Today
