Hello, everyone. Today I want to talk about a sad accident that occurred in Miyazaki City. In this incident, a mother and child were hit by a car in the supermarket parking lot shortly after 11 a.m. The baby is in critical condition with unconsciousness, and the mother also suffered a leg injury. The car was driven by a man in his 70s, and the police are investigating the cause of the accident.
How did this accident happen? According to an eyewitness, the mother was walking on the sidewalk with her child when they were suddenly hit by a car that was driving in reverse. The baby suffered a head injury and bleeding, while the mother was struck and killed. Nearby witnesses immediately called an ambulance, and medical staff rushed to the scene to transport the mother and child to the hospital. However, the baby’s condition is extremely critical and has not yet been revived. The mother suffered serious injuries such as a fractured leg, but her life is believed to be out of danger.
Why did the young driver drive in reverse? According to the police, the man got into a car in the supermarket parking lot after shopping. However, when he tried to back up, he didn’t notice the mother and child because another car was parked in front of his. The man stated, “I’m sorry. I didn’t see them,” and the police are investigating his driver’s license and vision.
What lessons can this accident teach us? Here are some thoughts:
- Parking safety: Parking lots are dangerous places where cars and pedestrians coexist. Especially when backing up, always be aware of your surroundings. Pedestrians also need to be constantly alert to the possibility of approaching vehicles. Safety measures such as fences and signs to separate cars and pedestrians are necessary in parking lots.
- Elderly driving: The man involved in the accident is in his 70s. Elderly people may have reduced vision and reaction speed. Therefore, careful attention is necessary while driving. Elderly people need to regularly assess their driving ability and decide whether to drive based on their physical condition and mood. Support from family and friends is also important.
- The preciousness of mother and child’s lives: This accident endangered the precious lives of a mother and child. The mother was hit and killed while trying to protect her child from the car. The baby is a child whose life has not yet begun. We must not forget the preciousness of the lives of the mother and child. We sincerely pray for the recovery of the mother and child.
