A auto, right rear, driven by an 87-year-old man crashed into a garbage truck, foreground, on a Tokyo street Friday, killing a woman and a girl who were on a bicycle, according to police.

Two people were killed and eight others were injured in Tokyo on Friday after a auto rammed into a group of pedestrians at a crosswalk, police said. Cases where drivers mistook the accelerator for the brake pedal before causing a fatal accident were nearly eight times higher among the elderly during the reporting period.

Drivers aged 75 or older, including those who had not taken a cognition test, caused 418 fatal accidents in 2017 alone, of which 41 per cent were vehicle collisions and 19 per cent involved collisions between vehicles and pedestrians. "The garbage truck was on its side, and it looked like the passenger auto, a truck, and several other vehicles had collided", he added. A straw hat and a helmet were lying nearby.
