A 67-year-old woman died after her car went off a rooftop car park in Fuchu, Tokyo, on Sunday.
According to police, the accident occurred at around 3:50 a.m. on the roof of a wholesale market. TV Asahi quoted police as saying the woman, identified as Noriko Otaki, most likely pressed the accelerator instead of the brake and crashed through a barrier.
The car fell about eight meters. Otaki was flung from the car on impact, police said. She was taken to hospital with severe head injuries and was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police said Otaki operated a ramen restaurant at the market and usually parked her car on the rooftop.© Japan Today
