Woman, 35, dies after being struck by car in Waimanalo

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:27 a.m. HST, Jan 10, 2013


A 35-year-old homeless woman was killed early this morning while walking on the road in Waimanalo near the Jack in the Box fast food restaurant.

Police said the woman was taken in critical condition to the Queen’s Medical Center after being hit by a man traveling east on Kalanianaole Highway near Poalima Street at 1:05 a.m. She had been walking on road and was not in a marked crosswalk. The victim died at the hospital.

Speed or alcohol do not appear to be factors in crash, police said.

This was Oahu’s third traffic death, compared to one at the same time a year ago.

Sometimes people unfortunately walk into the path of a car. I do not know the circumstances in this case. Deepest condolences. I would say this though. Have to be really aware of surroundings in any area, especially areas where children could come running out into a street from between parked cars.

Also as a rule of thumb when i am driving in the dead of the night when there are hardly any cars around, i go 5 MPH below the speed limit, and i also go another 5 MPH lower if the roads are wet.

I remember an incident on the off ramp of the H-1 West at the Houghtailing Street off ramp at about 8:45pm in November 2011 that really had me wondering about some people. if u want to view it as it happened without any cuts in my video, i have it on You Tube as "Pedestrian Near Freeway Exit". On that video i was so concerned that i went around to see what happened to that guy. It turned out someone had already called HPD to counsel the guy as to keeping away from the roads and to stay home. I could have easily run over that guy, or another car could have easily run over him. Sometimes people with distraught feelings need to be talked to constantly.

Oh come on folks. She was walking on the road at 1 o'clock in the morning, probably not facing traffic as one should do at all hours, not to mention in the middle of the night. People run over by horses back in the day, you know. This was an accident, plain and simple. Two beings who one would never logically expect to be in the same place at the same time were. You are belittlling the tragic loss of this woman's life by trying to make this more than it is. It sounds like she was having a rough enough time in life, so just wish her some peace in death, and the driver too, who I'm sure is feeling pretty bad about this.

Another report said she "may have been drunk." So sad, but she was in wrong place at wrong time.

A sidewalk to walk on would've been helpful. The folks in Waimanalo and Haleiwa - another community with pedestrian traffic - deserve sidewalks.
