NAGOYA – An 18-year-old boy was arrested Sunday for “dangerous driving resulting in death” — the first application of a new, stricter driving penalty, police said.
The teenager, who was drunk when he hit Tsuneo Hiramatsu, 87, with his sedan at 7:10 a.m. in Handa, Aichi Prefecture, also failed to rescue the man, who died of traumatic shock as a result, police said. The driver is also suspected of committing a hit-and-run.
