Yokosuka-based sailor accused of drunken driving after wrong-way crash on expressway


Recommended Posts

TOKYO – Japanese police say a U.S. Navy sailor was intoxicated when he crashed his vehicle into two trucks on a Japanese expressway on May 16 in Yokohama.

The unnamed service member, who is assigned to Yokosuka Naval Base, was “involved in a multi-vehicle accident, driving the wrong way on the Shuto Highway, after entering from an exit ramp” at about 3:45 a.m., base spokesman Randall Baucom said in an email Wednesday.

“The sailor was treated at a local hospital and the occupants of the other vehicles did not seek medical care at the scene,” he said.
