Japan prop Takuma Asahara was forced to miss the team’s training camp after being hit by a car while on a night out.
The Sunwolves player was drunk and lying in the street of Japanese suburb Fuchu in the early hours of Sunday morning when a man accidentally reversed a car over him, pinning him under the vehicle, according to the Japan Times.
Asahara’s teammates, including Japan captain Michael Leitch, had to lift the car off the 31-year-old to pull him to safety.
Police said Asahara only sustained minor injuries from the incident.
