The mother and her son were killed by a car accident. I am very sorry.”

In court, the defendant squeezed out his voice and apologized to the bereaved families.

On June 27, the Tokyo District Court heard the first trial of Kota Urushihara, 51, a former mechanic charged with negligent homicide in the death of a mother and child who were hit by a car while walking on the sidewalk. Kota Urushihara, dressed in a black suit, appeared depressed throughout the trial.

The accident happened last December. A 43-year-old mother and her 6-year-old daughter were killed. Urahara admitted to the charges against him and stated that he mistakenly stepped on the accelerator and the brake. The family of the deceased, the mother’s husband and father of the daughter, stated through their lawyer, “We hope that he will face his crime and make amends.

The prosecution asked for five years in prison, saying, “The sense of loss and despair felt by the bereaved family is too much to bear,” and “Thorough correctional education is necessary through a prison sentence. The defense, on the other hand, is asking for a suspended sentence, saying, ‘The defendant has faced up to the accident and deeply regrets it.

FRIDAY Digital” filmed the scene immediately after the accident and the scene of the transfer of the defendant Urushihara. We would like to look back on the tragic case in which a mother and child lost their lives.

The husband and daughter witnessed it firsthand.

The accident occurred a little after 5:00 p.m. on December 26, 2011. The location was an auto body shop in Takaido Higashi, Suginami Ward, Tokyo. A woman, an illustrator, and her daughter, a first grade elementary school girl, were walking on the sidewalk when they were struck and killed by a British luxury car, a Jaguar, as it came out of the factory.

The defendant Urushihara was driving the “Jaguar. The car had been sent to the factory for inspection by a customer. There were no brake marks at the scene, and according to the police investigation at the time, the car sped off at a speed of between 25 and 30 kilometers per hour.

The car apparently hit Mr. A and Ms. B, cut through a road with two lanes in each direction and a width of approximately 11 m, collided with an oncoming guardrail, and came to a stop on the sidewalk. The defendant, Urushihara, was caught red-handed on the spot by a police officer of the Takaido Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department,” said a reporter from the society section of a national newspaper.

When firefighters responded to the call, they found Mr. A under the car and Mr. B lying near the center of the road; both had been struck in the head and stomach and were pronounced dead on the spot. The cause of death was multiple trauma for Mr. A and head trauma for Mr. B.

Mrs. A and Mrs. B were on their way back to their home. A few meters behind them was Ms. A’s husband and another daughter, who were walking and saw the accident. The rear of the car was wrecked, showing the strength of the impact of the accident.

When the photographer for this magazine photographed defendant Urushihara immediately after his arrest, he appeared nonchalant and was being transported from the Takaido Police Station. The scene of the accident was graphic, and the guardrail where the car hit the ground was gnarled and distorted. Many flowers and juice were offered to the deceased mother and child in mourning.

The verdict is scheduled to be handed down on July 19.
