Mukai Osamu involved in car accident, nooo~! D:
Mukai Osamu (28), the star of NHK's morning television series "Gegege no Nyuubou," was involved in a rear-end collision at around 10:30am April 22nd in the metro.
According to the Setagaya police department, Mukai rear-ended the stopped car in front of him on a road in Setagaya's second district. The couple in the car that was hit are going to court due to possible neck injuries.
On the way to an recording shoot for "Gegege," Mukai said, "The light had turned green and I thought the car in front of me moved but they were still stopped."
His agency released a comment stating, "[Mukai] is deeply reflecting on his actions and hopes the other car involved will sincerely understand."

Wow, I hope this doesn't get ugly. At least it's not as bad as what happened to Kashiwabara Takashi...
