A 7-year-old boy was killed in a traffic accident involving two cars in Minami-Soma City, Fukushima Prefecture, on Sunday morning. According to police, Shinnosuke Tamura died after his 43-year-old father's car crashed into another car at an intersection around 7:20 a.m.
Shinnosuke, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown out of the car and died of severe head injuries. Police said the 25-year-old driver of the other car seems to have ignored the stop sign at the intersection.
