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.
