‘Not Guilty’ plea sets stage for GI’s Wednesday hearing

Date Posted: 2010-03-04

A U.S. Army non-commissioned officer charged with fleeing the scene of an accident and vehicular manslaughter will be back in the courtroom on Wednesday, two weeks after he pleaded not guilty to the charges that he killed a man walking along a Yomitan Village street last November.

Staff Sergeant Clyde Gunn, an Army medic assigned to an Army Special Forces unit at Torii Station, is accused of hitting 66-year-old Masakazu Hokama while driving along a narrow Yomitan Village road shortly before 6 a.m. November 7th. Gunn has admitted he thought he struck something as he drove along the road that morning, but says he saw nothing when he stopped the car and looked around. He was later identified as a suspect when he took the damaged car to a local Yomitan auto repair shop.

“It was very dark, before dawn,” Gunn told the court last month. He said he didn’t see Hokama taking his morning walk along the roadway. Records show Hokama was dressed in dark clothing without reflective markings. He died of a broken neck.
