Japanese ran over by own vehicle


Zaragoza, Nueva Ecija: A Japanese national died after he was allegedly ran over by his own pickup truck in this town, 129 kilometers, northwest of Manila. Police, however, are looking closely into the incident to rule out a foul play. Witness Anthony Daniel told police he saw Takao Sawa, 48, apparently drunk as he was walking in zigzag in front of his house in Barangay Santo Rosario at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Minutes later, he allegedly saw a wayward Toyota Hilux pickup hit him. The pickup truck, with license plate AAJ-5974, is owned by the victim. Police 0fficer 2 Arnaldo Gabbac Jr, case investigator, suspects that Sawa alighted from his vehicle, left the engine on and in reverse gear when it backed off and ran over him. Sawa did not reach Central Luzon Doctors Hospital in Tarlac City alive. The victim reportedly owns Yukumiko Resto in this town with other branch in Tarlac City.
