Hawaii County police identified a 53-year-old woman who died Saturday night after she was hit by a car near a Hawaii Belt Road cross walk in Hilo.

Police said Pamela G. Wilson, of Hilo, was on the mauka shoulder of the road fronting a cross walk near the intersection at Hawaii Belt Road and Pukihae Street in Hilo when she was hit around 9:40 p.m. by a 2005 Kia sedan driving south.

The driver, a 37-year-old Volcano man, and his 3-year-old son were uninjured.

Fire rescue crews took the woman to Hilo Medical Center, where she died at 11:58 p.m.

Police initiated a negligent homicide investigation and ordered an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. 

This is the 10th traffic fatality on the Big Island this year, compared to seven at the same time last year, police said.
