The driver of a car traveling along the Yokohama Yokosuka highway called police on Tuesday night to report that a passenger in his car had jumped out while they were driving along.

According to investigators, the passenger, identified as 23-year-old Yokosuka resident Haruki Ishizaki, was hit by a number of vehicles and was already dead when found by police. Two other men, both Ishizaki's coworkers, were riding in the car at the time of the tragedy. The driver told police that Ishizaki suddenly opened the door and jumped out of the back seat.

I hope the cops are going to do a little bit more investigating than this. Throwing yourself out of a car is an odd way to off yourself. At the very least I hope the J coppers at least consider the circumstances surrounding this horrible event with taking the "co workers" statements at face value.

I certainly hope there weren't any kids that witnessed this horrific event.

RIP. I wonder how can they be so sure that he jumped out of the car? He might as well have fallen from it accidentaly.

Did he jump or was he pushed?

Was he trying a spot of car surfing?

The polices need to get to the bottom of this.

"Let me out!" repeated 10 times, by a winer.... Get out then. And he did. Must of been one of those Japanese who think nothing bad can happen to them. Mistake.

HOpefully they were near some of the cameras monitoring traffic conditions and some light can be exposed on this death. BTW, do those cameras actully work?

Finally someone innovative in doing suicide! Not the same old jump from the platform thing! I say kudos to him for that!

I won't be impressed until someone commits suicide in such an unusual manner as described by George Carlin, by using dental floss and a Stinger missile.

Strange method of suicide, a bizarre accident, drunken play gone awry or attempted murder? Really hard to say. Hope they make the effort to find out the truth.

'hit by a number of vehicles'? --you would think that the first car to hit him would stop and that others cars would have to drive around or stop too.

...was hit by a number of vehicles ...

All these drivers are of course guilty of vehicular manslaughter and must be tracked down. Wonder how they will divide the penalty then.

P.S.:@Mods:The buttons for function 'Bold' and 'Italic' are switched (at least in Opera). Meaning --> when I want bold, I have to click Italic and vice versa. This is the case since long time (years?) and I wonder if it was addressed before.

Did they interrogate the coworkers? This looks like a strange suicide.

jumped out of a moving car ? sounds fishy to say the least...j-cops will probably call it a suicide.
