A 25-year-old Ewa Beach woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of a 77-year-old man who was crossing Fort Weaver Road in a crosswalk last year.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of negligent injury and of not having a driver's license a year ago on Jan. 16.

The pedestrian, an Ewa Beach resident, was taken in critical condition to Queen's Medical Center, where he died on Feb. 10.

According to police, the man was crossing Fort Weaver Road near the Kilaha Street intersection when he was struck by the vehicle.

Lolo driving without a license. It discloses the mentality of the driver and sensibilities to her fellow-persons. Again choice we make results in someone losing their life. Sad.

But nothing meaningful will happen, like usual our lazy law makers will avoid it and the ever present "no insurance".....I recently heard it is now 1 in 5 are actually insured. Look it up. But nothing will change. I might cancel my policy. Poho right??

Want to cut down on traffic deaths? Treat cars like we treat guns. Use a gun/car in the commission of a crime (no license/insurance/DWI)... You WILL get 5 years tacked on to what ever sentence the judge gives you... I think something like a death will get a gun/car user an additional 20 years.

Good job. Too many people nowadays think that they are invincible and above the law. We all need to be compliant so that Hawaii can be a better place and we can prevent matters such as this. Condolences to the folks.

I got hit by an uninsured driver about 2 years ago and nothing happened to him. Lucky for me I wasn't hurt and my insurance cover the damage. Per my insurance agent, a high percentage of people who drive in Hawaii are uninsured and regularly get into accidents. I don't understand why our legislators don't find a way to deal with this problem which has been growing for years.

Maybe I'm remembering this wrong, but aren't you supposed to provide proof of insurance when doing safety checks every year? How are these people getting around with no insurance, unless they're driving around with expired safety check stickers?

They get insurance just before the Safety Check, send in the registration, then cancel the insurance..or they have friends at safety check stations...

What's wrong with doing the right think? Having a valid license, insurance, buckling up, not drinking and driving, etc.

In an ideal world you are correct. In Hawaii we have our traffic pedestrian deaths because it's such a great place to walk and enjoy the climate. In Chicago they have 500 murders a year it's a shooting gallery. They have their sport.

The owner of the vehicle should also be liable for letting her drive without a license. This is more like negligent homicide.

It's interesting. I'm so confused as to how people can drive so badly here. There's accidents all the time. ALL THE TIME. Same areas too. The big issue is people don't concern themselves with THE RIGHT OF WAY. Do people even know that on the Mainland if a pedestrian even steps on a crosswalk you can get a ticket if you don't stop? Even if you have room to get through you have to stop. Maybe that law should be enforced here so that people actually pay attention. As an avid pedestrian I always have to be very watchful. Not that pedestrians shouldn't watch where they are going, but we really shouldn't feel like we have to be more responsible than drivers. I've almost been hit several times, and the only reason I wasn't is because I always look at the driver to see what their IQ is. Needless to say many people have very low IQ.

Funny - as I was reading your comment, I was thinking the same thing in reverse. As a driver, I pay attention to pedestrians to see what their IQ is. And I find there are a bunch of idiots walking around. So many people running across the street when the signal is already flashing that red hand; so many talking on cell phones and not paying attention to what's going on around them; so many stepping into the street when they don't have a walk signal...

That's definitely true. I won't argue with you about the stupidity of pedestrians. I consider the flashing hand to be like an extended yellow light. If I can make it, I'll run for it. Then again I'm agile and am usually skating places. I refuse to wait for the light to change again if I have time to make it across. Doing that has never put me in danger anyway. People are oblivious though. There's those who think they don't have to care because they feel entitled as pedestrians, and there's those who understand that they have to be just as wary and responsible as the driver. It's that first group of people on either side of the fence that make our lives that much more at risk.

The law states that the countdown numbers being displayed are for those already in a crosswalk, notifying them as to the amount of time they have left to cross. Once the countdown numbers are displayed, or the red hand starts blinking, this is not the time to dart out across the street. "I refuse to wait for the light to change again if I have time to make it across," is an open admission of guilt in breaking the law. Sooner or later, it willl catch up with you, hopefully without disasterous results.
