The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office has identified the 63-year-old Aiea woman killed Wednesday when she was run over by a car near the Pearlridge Center as Siu King Tang.

The victim was standing on the sidewalk at Moanalua Road and Kaonohi Street when she was pinned under a car.

Police said two cars traveling west on Moanalua Road collided at the intersection.

One of the cars, a Toyota Corolla driven by a 77-year-old man, collided with a Ford Ranger truck driven by a 54-year-old man.

The driver of the Corolla then drove onto the sidewalk, striking the woman.

She was taken in critical condition to Pali Momi Medical Center, where she died. The driver of the Toyota suffered minor injuries. He refused treatment.

This was Oahu's 49th traffic death, compared to 48 at the same time a year ago.

Be careful while standing at any intersection or sidewalk next to a roadway. This particular intersection that the cars were traveling is heading in an angle towards that corner of the intersection when entering the intersection going west on Moanalua Road. Don't know if she was right at the corner or on the edge of the sidewalk. An important safety measure while on any sidewalk or intersection is to stay to the inner side of it, meaning farthest from the roadway. Many times parents with strollers have their infants or toddlers right at the edge of the curb waiting. Please be careful. My condolence to the woman's family.

How sad for the lady. She probably worked all her life and was so close to enjoying retirement. They need to examine that 77 year old driver who caused the accident and killed her. Was he competent in operating a motor vehicle at his age?
