Breaking News: JLPGA's Ah-Reum Hwang Appears to Have Killed a Pedestrian
The Japanese media are reporting that on January 19th, 7-year JLPGA member Ah-Reum Hwang was involved in a car accident in Kanagawa Prefecture after which an elderly pedestrian died. Not too many details have been released, but it appears she struck a 90-year-old man--Mamoru Sakurada, who had left the JR Ninomiya station, headed home on foot--while driving from a restaurant to her hotel. She contacted the authorities and told them she noticed the pedestrian too late to react. Hwang has been competing in a pro-am tournament in the area, but was arrested at the scene of the accident.
