An 89-year-old Kaneohe man died Thursday morning from injuries he sustained when a car struck him earlier that morning while he was crossing Kaneohe Bay Drive.
Police said a 68-year-old Kailua man driving a white 2009 Volvo sedan struck the pedestrian in a marked crosswalk. The driver was heading west on Kaneohe Bay Drive.
The accident occurred in front of Castle High School, an Emergency Medical Services report said.
The older man received multiple injuries, and was taken in critical condition by ambulance to the Queen's Medical Center, where he died a short time later.
Police said this was the 21st fatality this year compared to 24 the same time last year.
