On Friday, March 26, 2021, at about 0115 A.M., there was a fatal pedestrian motor vehicle collision in the area of Randolph Street and Midway Street in the Kapolei area.
A 52-year-old Kapolei male and his co-worker, a 36-year-old Aiea male, were involved in an argument. The 52-year-old Kapolei male left the area and returned shortly thereafter. Upon his return, a confrontation began to ensue between the 52-year-old Kapolei male, the 36-year-old Aiea male, and his friend, a 41-year old Pearl City male.
As the 41-year-old Pearl City male attempted to leave the scene in his vehicle, he fatally struck the 36-year-old Aiea male and fled the scene of the collision.
The 41-year-old Pearl City male was located shortly thereafter by responding officers and at which time he was placed under arrest for Accidents Involving Death or Serious Bodily Injury and Negligent Homicide in the Third Degree.
At this time, neither speed, drugs, or alcohol appear to be contributing factors.
This is the 16th Traffic Fatality on Oahu this year, as compared to 10 at this same time in 2020.
The investigation is ongoing.
