The prosecutor's office sentenced him to seven years in prison for "continuing to step on the accelerator by mistake for a brake" in a trial of a 90-year-old defendant accused of causing a car runaway in Tokyo Ikebukuro and killing his mother and child. ..

Former Ministry of International Trade and Industry executive Kozo Iizuka (90) killed Mana Matsunaga (31) and her eldest daughter Riko (3) in April when she ran out of control in a car in Ikebukuro, Tokyo and hit a pedestrian. In addition, he has been acquitted of being accused of accidental driving fatal injury for causing serious and minor injuries to nine people.

On the 15th, the Tokyo District Court made a statement of opinions about the bereaved family, and Takuya Matsunaga, who lost his wife and daughter, said, "Even if I hold my daughter's small hand, I will not hold it back. I felt despair. The defendant did not reflect at all, and I do not think he was facing his life or bereaved family. I hope that he will be given the maximum punishment by law. "



After that, the prosecutor's office sentenced him to seven years in prison, saying, "There is no doubt that he continued to step on the accelerator by mistake for the brakes. The result of the two lives being lost in an instant is serious."
