Police are investigating a hit-and-run accident that sent a man in his 20s to the hospital in extremely critical condition just after midnight.

According to police, the man was crossing Kamehameha Highway near Hekaha Street in Waimalu when he was struck by a vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle fled the scene.

The injured man, who was not carrying identification, was transported by Emergency Medical Services to the Queen's Medical Center

Police said the man was about 79 feet away from a crosswalk when he was struck.

Speed may have been a factor in the incident, police said. It is not known if alcohol or drugs were factors.

Police closed the town-bound lanes of Kamehameha Highway between Hekaha and Kanuku streets while Traffic Division officers investigated the incident, and reopened the lanes by 3:15 a.m. Saturday.

Again, don't take short cuts, because not worth it. As for speeding, again don't take short cuts, especially in rainy weather. The pedestrian and motor vehicle unfortunately met in this place, in this time, powered either by gasoline or electricity. My gosh stop and render aid, as a hit on something will cause a booming noise on a car. Hope this man recovers. I asked someone recently what happened as he was walking with a pronounced limp with a cane. He said car a rammed him while he was riding a bicycle. He said the insurance company settled claims, however both he and I knew life will never be the same. I said sorry to him before I went.
