Hi Jimmy, the Italian newspapers reported the new too, but they say the incident happened during what the Japanese police thinks was an illegal race. Do you have the same info ?
Hi Mauro,...I do not have any concrete informations because I have not followed the story. You info may be accurate. Usually on weekends, I understand that various groups of car affectionates gather to do very strange habits. Looking at some of the crashed F cars on those news clips, one can tell the kind of onwers involved. Sorry to judge, but those do not look too high end, so to speak. Not sure they were racing, but for sure they were speeding well over the legal speed limit, which is 80kph !!!
As a side note, in the heart of Tokyo, among the many tollways crisscrossing the metropolis, we have this one tollway that makes a loop, in other words, making a large circle around Tokyo, and more than seven other tollways branch off from this loop or connects. Anyway, on weekends' early hours, because it makes a loop and all you have pay is one fee of 700 JPyen, once you get on, you can go round and round until bored,...there's always a bunch of psychos racing this loop well over180kph. They are well aware that police are on the watch, but they do not seem to care. Such is one aspect of Japan. w/ smiles Jimmy
