Pedestrian killed on Kamehameha Highway

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:13 p.m. HST, Feb 15, 2014

A woman pedestrian hit by a vehicle on Kamehameha Highway has died, Honolulu police said.

Traffic Division Lt. Robert Towne told KITV News that weather could be a factor in the crash, along with reduced visibility.

Police closed the east-bound lanes of Kamehameha Highway between Pali Momi Street and Lipoa Place while Traffic Division officers investigated the crash scene.

The HPD Traffic website reports an accident in the area at about 4:23 a.m.

The roads were reopened at 7:21 a.m.

Where in the report did it refer to speeding? More like when will pedestrians cross with care & haste, look both ways, and get off their G-D cell phones?

Where in the story was there a reference to pedestrian negligence, not looking both ways or cell phone usage?

I'm pretty sure there are law enforcement people patrolling our streets in an ongoing basis, so I'm not sure what you mean by your comment.

Drivers also need to be focusing on the road instead of elsewhere, not only pedestrians!

Also, vehicles must stop when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. What's so hard about that? Oh, I forgot, in a hurry.

Also, pedestrians should stop and be alert of their surroundings, oh yea, in a hurry.

Not much traffic (pedestrian/cars) at 4:23 am. The area is well lit. Cars do speed there because there's no traffic and just race through. Sometimes there are police presence but it's usually around one or two o'clock in the morning. There are bus stops on both sides (Anna Millers/Home world). It's too soon to say who was at fault until the final investigation. Cars vs pedestrian... it's a no brainer who will have the serious injury. Hard to stop a car when it's speeding and at 4:23 am your reflexes are not at full capacity especially when you just got up or returning from work.

Everyone's in a hurry, and with more pedestrians and more traffic, there's bound to be more road kill.

The article doesn't even say if the pedestrian was trying to cross the highway. I personally am very wary of cars even while walking on the sidewalk. Many cars are going way too fast and there have been many cases of cars hitting light poles, fire hydrants, and trees. There are likely cases where cars hit people on the sidewalk. Crossing streets are even more dangerous.

I learned to cross the street at any point I wanted to back in Brooklyn when I was still wet behind the ears. I look both ways even on one way streets and parking lots.

The first thing they taught me was to look both ways. You might have the right of way but you'll be dead right?
