A 6-year-old boy who sustained serious injuries last Sunday after a passenger car ran onto a sidewalk hitting him and three others members, died of head injuries on Thursday night, police said. The boy had been in a coma since the incident.
The car, driven by Tomohiro Miyata, 20, plowed into the pedestrians on the sidewalk of a four-lane straight road after running through a red light at a busy intersection in Tokyo's Denenchofu in Ota Ward. It then rammed into a power pole and the hedge of a condominium. A 9-year-old boy was killed while his grandparents were seriously injured. The 6-year-old boy was the 9-year-old's cousin.© Compiled from news reports
