TOCHIGI (TR) – A truck driver got into an altercation after his vehicle plowed into a bike shop in Utsunomiya City on Wednesday, reports Nippon News Network (Apr. 26).

At around 4:30 p.m., the male driver, an employee of Fukuyama Transporting aged in his 40s, crashed into the shop. He then got into an altercation with shop staff members, which included him punching one person in the face.
