8 Nov – Hong Kong-Japanese singer YOSHI has recently passed away following a motor vehicle accident.
As reported on Sina, the singer died after he was taken to the hospital on 5 November, following a collision between his motorcycle and a truck at the intersection of Kawasaki City in Kanagawa.
On the other hand, the driver of the truck has been arrested on suspicion of violating the Automobile Driving Punishment Act.
