On November 24, 2020 at about 6:35 pm, the Traffic Division’s VHS was notified by District 8 patrol that a Critical pedestrian Motor Vehicle Collision had occurred in the Nanakuli area.
On November 24, 2020 at about 6:04 pm, a 2012 Dodge sedan, driven by a 44 year old male with three occupants (1 adult female, 1 juvenile male and 1 juvenile female) was headed east on Farrington Hwy in the left lane.
A 62 year old adult male pedestrian was attempting to cross Farrington Highway from the Mauka side to the Makai side. Westbound vehicles stopped to let the male across and the male ran across the Highway into the path of the vehicle.
The male was taken to an area hospital and was listed as being in critical condition, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The male pedestrian was not within a marked crosswalk.
The vehicle stopped and remained at the scene and all occupants in the vehicle were not injured.
At this time, speed, alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in this collision on the part of the vehicles’ operator. It is unknown if they were factors in the part of the pedestrian.
This is the 48th Traffic Fatality of 2020, compared to 46 at the same time last year.
the investigation is on going.
