The Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man who died after he was struck by a car while crossing against the don't walk sign on Kamehameha Highway last week as Remigio Welle, 68, of Aiea.

Police said a car hit Welle at about 9 p.m. Tuesday as he crossed the highway in the Ewa-bound lanes near the Middle Street freeway onramp.

An ambulance took Welle in extremely critical condition to the Queen's Medical Center, where he died at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said witnesses driving town-bound honked their horns and tried to warn Welle, who had reached the median strip and continued to cross the road against the light.
