A man who was lying on the road drunk was killed by a driver who could not avoid running him over, police said Friday.
The 42-year-old victim surnamed Hong had been drinking heavily before he walked into the road in the Namgu District of Ulsan on Thursday around 12:20 a.m.
Local police said the driver, Lee, could not spot the lying man on the ground and ran over him.
“Lee was not driving drunk at that time of the accident,” police said. “We are working to verify details regarding the clash and also check CCTV footage near the area.”
