Two die in motorcycle accident

Date Posted: 1998-04-12

A tragic motorcycle in Okinawa City on Friday morning has claimed the lives of a young couple. Yoshio Ishigaki, 23, and Masayo Kohama, 26, both from Okinawa City, were traveling along Route 329 in the Ozato area, apparently at a high speed on a 650cc motorcycle. As the couple approached the Takahara intersection, their bike failed to respond to a slight curve in the road and they hit the curb. The bike flipped over and both Ms. Kohama and Mr. Ishigaki were thrown from the machine.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they determined the bike has slid more than 20 meters from the accident sight. Mr. Ishigaki was heavily wounded when paramedics arrived and Ms. Kohama was pronounced dead due to head injuries sustained from the accident. Mr. Ishigaki was later pronounced dead after arrival at an area hospital.
