Victim in Kaneohe Bay Drive crash identified

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:46 p.m. HST, Jan 6, 2013

The Medical Examiner's Office identified an 81-year-old man killed Saturday while crossing Kaneohe Bay Drive as George Obata, of Kaneohe.

A 39-year-old man driving a Toyota Echo struck Obata at about 6:45 a.m., police said. Obata was apparently crossing the road to buy papayas at a home.

Paramedics took Obata in extremely critical condition to the Castle Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police said neither speed nor alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash. 

Obata's death is the second pedestrian death this year and this weekend. A 60-year-old homeless man was struck and killed by a pickup truck before sunrise Friday morning while crossing the street in an unlit area of Nanakuli near the Kahe power plant. The Medical Examiner's Office has not yet identified him.
