One dies in Kadena Town traffic accident

Date Posted: 2007-07-31

An elderly man died Monday afternoon after his car went out of control, crashed into a median divider, then careened into the back of an American military truck.

Officials say Shoei Shimabukuro was driving toward Kadena Rotary from Okinawa City on Route 74 when he apparently lost control, his car striking the center divider, and then hitting the rear end of a military truck stopped at a traffic light at Kadena Road Station T-Junction. The 77-year-old Shimabukuro suffered severe head and abdominal injuries. He died Monday evening at a local hospital.

The American serviceman driving the truck suffered no injuries.
