A taxi driver who was found lying on the ground beside his vehicle in Tokyo's Katsushika Ward early Tuesday has died of his injuries.
Police identified the driver as Kikuo Mihashi, 66. Fuji TV reported that a newspaper deliveryman found him lying beside his taxi at around 5 a.m. Mihashi was taken to hospital where he died a short time later.
According to police, Mihashi had a bruise above his right eye, though that is unlikely to have been the cause of death. Police suspect some sort of medical condition may have caused Mihashi's death and said a autopsy will be conducted.
Police said there were no signs of a struggle inside the taxi. A receipt for fare payment was still in the meter and the driver's door was open.© Japan Today
