A sightseeing bus plowed into the back of a chauffeur-driven car in central Tokyo on Wednesday, killing the sedan driver, who was in his 50s, and prompting police to arrest the bus driver at the site.

No passengers were on the bus — operated by Hato Bus Co., which is known for its unique tours around the capital — or in the sedan when the accident occurred at around 6:35 p.m. near the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building in Shinjuku Ward, the police said.
