Bicycling teenager killed in Naha City accident

Date Posted: 2011-04-21

Naha City Police are investigating the Monday traffic fatality of a 15-year-old girl who died after being struck by a truck.

The teen was crushed by the mid-size truck, which ran over her as she rode her bicycle at a crosswalk in Naha City’s Kumoji district. Police say the girl was going straight and the truck struck her while making a left turn onto Prefecture Road 42. Mizuki Fukumura was pronounced dead of hemorrhagic shock 1 ˝ hours after the morning accident.

Naha Police say their investigation is continuing, because they believe the 26-year-old truck driver, who remains unidentified, may have caused the accident. He’s suspected of failing to follow proper safety procedures with the truck.
