Killer Khan, a retired pro wrestler who feuded in WWF with the likes of Andre the Giant in his day, is making headlines again for a much different reason.

According to The Tokyo Reporter, Khan is the subject of a hit and run case. The 73-year-old struck a woman while riding a bicycle, and then he fled the scene. The incident took place “eariler this year.” Security cameras in the area were able to identify Khan.

At just past 5:00 p.m. on October 18, Killer Khan, whose name is Masashi Ozawa, struck the woman, aged in her 20s, while riding a bicycle in the Hyakunincho area. He then fled the allegedly fled the scene.

Killer Khan currently owns a restaurant, and he claimed that he fled the scene because he needed to get to his business. The victim suffered a broken tooth and a few other minor injuries that took “about a month to heal.”


Khan has since apologized to the woman for causing those injuries. He was also charged with “suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Law regarding hit-and-run and negligence resulting in injury.”

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
