Kanjani8's Shibutani Subaru in rear-end collision in Shinjuku
After an inquiry at the police headquarters of the Totsuka division, it was discovered today that Shibutani Subaru (28), a member of the popular idol group Kanjani8 (Eito), was involved in a rear-end collision in metro Tokyo. Both Shibutani and the other involved party of the accident were not injured.
According to the Totsuka police, Shibutani was driving on a road in Shinjuku around five thirty in the morning on the 17th; when he attempted to stop at a red light, he collided with the rear end of a car driven by a businessman in his 30s from Tokyo. It was a traffic accident resulting in property damage with a dented bumper.
The Totsuka police states that there is a possibility Shibutani's car might have slipped on the road as it had been wet due to rain. Snowing falling out of season had also been observed in metro Tokyo on the 17th.
