A 73-year-old man who rammed his car into pedestrians in downtown Miyazaki Wednesday had suffered an epileptic seizure in the past, his acquaintances said Thursday.

Miyazaki police are also aware of the medical records of the driver, Mitsugi Kawauchi, 73, from neighboring Kagoshima Prefecture. But it still remains unclear whether his health had anything to do with the accident, they said.
