A 60-year-old Pearl City woman died of her injuries after she was hit by a Toyota Corolla traveling "at a high rate of speed" in a cross walk on Waimano Home Road Wednesday night, police said.
Police said a 1989 Toyota, driven by a 48-year-old Kapolei man, traveling downhill on Waimano Home Road hit the woman near the Leomele Street intersection at 8:13 p.m.
Paramedics took the woman in critical condition to the Queen's Medical Center with head and internal injuries. Police said she died of her injuries early this morning.
