On Saturday, April 23, 2022, at about 9:42 a.m., a motor vehicle collision occurred in the Kalihi area involving a pedestrian.
An Infinity SUV, operated by a 51 year old female, was traveling westbound on Kauluwela Place when it came to a stop within the intersection with Liliha Street. As the Infinity vehicle attempted to reverse to avoid blocking the intersection, it struck a pedestrian who was in a marked crosswalk.
The operator of the vehicle was not injured and remained at the scene.
The 66 year old male pedestrian was taken to an area hospital in “good” condition. While at the hospital, the pedestrian’s condition worsened and he succumbed to his injuries and died.
At the time of the collision, the Vehicular Homicide Section did not respond to the scene as it was not warranted.
Speed, drugs, and alcohol did not appear to be contributing factors in the collision.
This is the 18th traffic fatality on Oahu this year, as compared to 18 at this same time last year.
This investigation is on-going.
