While looking for information relating to the case above, I came across an update to another hit and run that occurred earlier this year on March 11.The victim, a student named Sho Funai, was walking when he was killed by a driver who later turned herself in. Despite pleading guilty to striking Funai and admitting to being under the influence of drugs and alcohol, the driver may only be charged with probation. In response to the verdict, Funai’s friends appalled at the ruling have started an online petition to demand justice for the death of Funai.
