Drunk firefighter crashes into bus, no one injured

Date Posted: 2002-05-03

A firefighter returning from his friendís wedding party crashed his car into a bus that had stopped to pick up passengers in Irabu Town, Miyako Island. No one was injured, but the bus suffered considerable damage. The firemanís car was totaled.

According to Miyako Police, the 43-year old fireman had attended his friendís wedding party earlier and consumed considerable quantities of alcoholic drinks. He then attempted to dive home although by eyewitness accounts he was barely able to walk.

Local police say that they have tried to fight against local custom of starting parties from the morning and then driving home for years, but to little avail. Being in a remote rural area, locals tend to ignore most of traffic rules, police claim. Police say that the situation is especially bad during long national holidays, such as the New Year and Golden Week.
