Prefecture was arrested for allegedly committing a hit-and-run while driving
under the influence of alcohol. It is also being alleged that the man tried to
hide that he was already intoxicated at the time of the incident by drinking
more alcohol after fleeing the scene of the crime.
Ogawa was driving his small truck while intoxicated on the night of November
30th, when he collided with a 17-year old young man on a motorcycle. He then
left the scene of the accident and went to a nearby ramen shop where he began
drinking sake in order to conceal that he was already drunk when he hit the
young man. An employee at the ramen shop has stated that Ogawa already seemed intoxicated
when he entered the ramen shop that night.
on the motorcycle by accident he is claiming that he did not begin drinking
until he arrived at the ramen shop.
seems that he likely worked as a driver. So obviously getting caught driving
while drunk would be pretty bad news for this guy. A hit-and-run is also pretty
bad though. If it really was just a simple accident not caused by being drunk
then it seems that there would be no need to flee the scene but I guess this
guy is claiming otherwise. Anyway, at the very least no one got killed. The
young man that got hit was injured but it appears that none of his injuries were serious.
