Accident that killed two people for driving without a license or escape or boy arrest Ibaraki October 17 15:45
On the 15th, two teenagers and a woman were killed when a light passenger car crashed into a traffic light pole on a national highway in Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki Prefecture, and a 19-year-old boy was arrested by police on suspicion of hit-and-run after driving the car without a license and causing an accident.
Just after 11 p.m. on the 15th, a light passenger car crashed into a pillar of a traffic light on the side of a road on a national highway in Teno-cho, Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki Prefecture, killing an 18-year-old vocational school student in Ishioka City and a 19-year-old worker living in Ami Town.
In addition to the woman being found in the passenger seat and the man in the back seat, police were investigating information that “there was a man leaving the scene.”
As a result, a 19-year-old demolition worker in Ryugasaki City drove the car unlicensed and caused an accident, and police arrested the boy on suspicion of hit-and-run.
The boy admits to the charges.
The light passenger car was in the name of a company that had nothing to do with the boy, so police are investigating in detail how the boy wanted to escape.
