On November 13, 2020, at about 9:15 PM, there was a fatal motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Farrington Highway and Haleakala Avenue in the Nanakuli area.
A 36-year-old Kapolei female was traveling eastbound on Farrington Highway when she struck a female who has yet to be identified who was crossing Farrington Highway in a marked crosswalk but against the “Do Not Walk Sign”.
As a result of the collision, the unidentified female was taken to an area hospital in critical condition but later succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.
The 36-year-old Kapolei female who remained at the scene was determined to be under the influence and was placed under arrest for Negligent Homicide in the First Degree and Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant (OVUII).
At this time, alcohol appears to be a contributing factor to this collision. Speed does not appear to be a contributing factor.
This is the 47th Traffic Fatality of 2020 compared to 46 at the same time in 2019
The investigation is ongoing.
