Police looking for witnesses in Kaimuki hit-and-run

By Star Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:56 p.m. HST, Jan 10, 2014

Police are asking the public for help in finding the hit-and-run driver who injured a 94-year-old pedestrian on Waialae Avenue on Jan. 3.

Witnesses are being asked to come forward in the case, which is being investigated as a failure to render aid.

The elderly man was hit at about 7:37 a.m. as he was crossing Waialae Avenue near 5th Avenue. The driver of a vehicle traveling east on Waialae Avenue reportedly ran a red light and failed to stop.

The car is described as a green four-door sedan with damages to the passenger side windshield. The vehicle was seen fleeing eastbound on Waialae.

The elderly victim suffered head and internal injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he was reported in critical condition last week. No updates on his condition were available.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300, or *CRIME on your cellular phone.  The public may now send anonymous text and web tips. Text "CS808" plus your message to 274637 or CRIMES.

I hope this man recovers, it's a tough thing to be hit and run. Meanwhile to the driver of the hit and run vehicle, just turn yourself in, how could you live with yourself after doing this? This was a Friday and people would have been going to work, so there would have been enough people as witnesses. Security video shows lots of cars.

Probably a 95yo driver who has no idea he ran over someone. There's a lot of people out there who should not be driving.

The Waialae Avenue corridor and its adjacent streets from Kaimuki to Kahala are a death trap for senior pedstrians. Would make for an interesting article. I know of at least three seniors meeting their demise on the asphalt of those streets. Must be a penchant for through traffic drivers to aim for the elderly. Score:: for 3 vehicular murderers to 0 for elderly pedestrians. Remember one driver opining that the two pedestrians she hit actually deliberately walked into her car while she was passing by. Tragic carelessness.

You should see the heedless, arrogant motorists in the KCC area. One motorcyclist in full Speed Racer gear casually cruised through the four-way stop at 12th and Kilauea, giving the finger twice to drivers in cars that observed the stop signs.

Oh, that Kaimuki - Kahala through traffic! It's simply murder! They should be trying these guys/gals who value their time (speeding, etc.) rather than life. But, no, they always say the sun was in their eyes, and get off scot-free. Well, maybe not. Probably, their car insurance premiums go up. Gee, that must hurt their wallets.

Approaching the 90 year mark in a couple years and do part of my exercising on a recumbent bike in my balcony 7/24 for 30 minutes every afternoon. Stretch exercise is done on my back in my living room every morning, thus avoiding any outdoor exposure.
