Four elementary school students walking to school in Sapporo on Monday morning were hit by a car that skidded on the icy road. Police said two of the children were seriously injured.
Police said the driver of the car told them he lost control of the vehicle which veered onto the sidewalk and hit the four children at around 8 a.m. in Kita Ward, TBS reported. Two girls suffered broken legs while two others sustained bruises.
The accident occurred on a straight stretch of road with visibility good, police said. However, the icy conditions have left furrows in the road, causing many cars to get into difficulties.© Japan Today
