How old was Warren Yoshio Watanabe ?
He was 62 year old.
Watanabe was taken to hospital with 14 broken ribs and severe kidney and liver injuries, the outlet reported. He died five days later.
Police said the woman knew she had hit something, but she did not realize that she was a person and she kept trying to maneuver to avoid it.
“There is no indication or belief that this was anything other than an accident,” Roy’s police spokesman Stuart Hackworth told the Standard-Examiner. “She was not aware of what she had hit.”
