Police said a pedestrian in his 30s was in the middle of the intersection, and not in a marked crosswalk, when he was struck and critically injured Wednesday night by a car at Makaloa and Kaheka streets near the Don Quijote store.

Police said the driver had the green light and was heading Diamond Head on Makaloa when the four-door sedan she was driving struck the man, who was recognized by officers as a homeless man in the area.

Emergency Medical Services paramedics transported the man in critical condition to the Queen’s Medical Center, authorities said.

The 77-year-old McCully woman, driving a four-door Chevrolet Prism, and her three passengers were not injured.

The woman said both crosswalks were clear when she entered the intersection on a green light, and heard a thud, which is how she knew she had struck someone.

The impact cracked her windshield.

EMS said the accident occurred at about 7:46 p.m. and the man was between 30 and 35 years old.
