A 75-year-old man was killed on Tuesday morning after he was hit by a car while crossing Nuuanu Avenue near Judd Street.
The driver of the car, a woman in her 50s, was arrested at the scene for suspicion of operating the vehicle under the influence, Traffic Division Lt. Robert Towne said.

Towne said the accident occurred at 5:15 a.m. Police closed a portion of Nuuanu Avenue between Judd and Bates streets for an investigation.
The road reopened by about 7:45 a.m.
Tuesday's fatality was Oahu's 34th death, compared to 35 at the same time last year.
