The Navy has identified the 21-year-old Pearl Harbor sailor who was killed in a hit-and-run crash Sunday as Petty Officer 3rd Class Victor Guzman, 21, of Oceanside, Calif.
Guzman died after being struck by a motor vehicle while walking along the H-1 freeway near Makakilo.
Guzman served as a culinary specialist on the cruiser USS Chosin.
Investigators are still trying to determine why the sailor was walking along the westbound lanes of the H-1 just before the Makakilo offramp.
The sailor was hit by one vehicle that fled. A 2007 Nissan Altima driven by a 22-year-old Mililani man also hit the sailor but did stop and called police at about 2:17 a.m., police said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
