A two-year-old girl was hit and killed by a car in the parking lot of a supermarket in Fukuoka City on Tuesday night.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 7 p.m. at a supermarket in Sawara Ward. Fuji TV reported that the child, Yuna Matsui, was hit by the car as it was pulling away from a parking space. The child sustained severe head injuries and was rushed to the hospital where she died shortly after arrival.
The 38-year-old woman who was driving the car was quoted by police as saying she had not noticed the girl. The woman said she felt a bump but did not know she had hit someone.
Police said Yuna had been shopping with her older brother and mother at the time. The mother told police she took her eyes off her daughter just for a few seconds and she apparently ran in front of the car.© Japan Today
