The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department has sent files to prosecutors on a former senior bureaucrat, related to suspicion of negligent driving resulting in deaths and injuries. The 88-year-old man was involved in a fatal car accident in April.
Kozo Iizuka drove his passenger car through pedestrian crossings in the Ikebukuro district, hitting 31-year-old Mana Matsunaga and her three-year-old daughter Riko who were riding on a bicycle. The two were killed and 10 others including the driver were injured.
Right now the majority of electric cars look and feel like a regular gas-powered car. However, Lexus has recently taken the wraps off their concept electric car, known as the LF-30, and if this is what the future of electric cars could look like, then you can definitely count us in as being extremely interested.
Given that this is a concept vehicle, design-wise we suppose it’s fair that Lexus went to town on it and gave it a pretty extreme look. We’re talking about sharp edges and gull-wing doors that helps to create that futuristic, but potentially achievable look. It even comes with a glass roof so that the car will be able to let in sunlight naturally.
