A 92-year-old woman was fatally injured Monday when she was struck by a car reversing at a senior center in Hilo.
Hawaii County police identified the victim as Tamiko Fujio of Hilo.
The accident, reported at 8:48 a.m., happened at the Kamana Senior Center at 127 Kamana St.
Police said a 59-year-old Hilo woman was reversing a 2008 Toyota four-door sedan from a lawn area onto a paved driveway when the car hit Fujio, who was walking to her vehicle.

The driver was not injured.
This fatality was not counted toward the official traffic fatality count because it happened on private property.
