A 30-year-old woman was arrested under the Road Traffic Law on Sunday after hitting a man with her car in a Nagano City car park and failing to stop at the scene.
Minako Nishio is accused of hitting Kazutoshi Hara, 31, with her car at about 1.30 a.m. Sunday morning as she was leaving a car park in Central Square, and driving off without stopping to check on the man’s condition. A passer-by who saw the incident called for an ambulance and gave police the car’s license plate number. Hara was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead about an hour later.
Police found Nishio at her home and arrested her. She admitted to hitting Hara but told police that he was sleeping on the road.© News reports
