A 25-year-old Kaimuki woman was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident involving a pedestrian Tuesday in Waikiki.

The 29-year-old woman was hit by a car, which fled the scene, at 10:25 p.m. at Lewers Street and Kalakaua Avenue. The victim was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

The 25-year-old suspect was arrested at her home an hour later and arrested on suspicion of first-degree negligent injury, accidental bodily injury, drunken driving and resisting an order to stop.

The suspect was released Wednesday pending further investigation.

No kidding, you know she's related to someone who's well-connected. The paper doesn't even report her name AFTER an actual arrest (which is public information). Reminds me of the fatal car accident many years ago when big-time Hawaii attorney James Koshiba's son killed someone in a car accident (probably DUI) and the car was mysteriously destroyed before the police could use it as evidence in James, Jr.'s negligent homicide trial. Nobody will mention this accident (except those of us who remember the victim), and the only record you can find of it is in the Judiciary's records - even a Google search won't bring up any newspaper records of it. Equal justice for all? Nope, not in Hawaii, and I suspect not in most places. Certainly no justice for the victims.

Some pretty serious allegations you're making. I wanted to respond with some facts. Regarding your comment "probably a DUI" I never touched alcohol in those days as anyone who knew me in high school will attest to. I had stayed up all night the night before to watch the sun rise at Makapuu with friends and was tired driving home the next morning. I was tried in criminal court, convicted and sentenced for my crime My parents were sued in civil court (because I was using their car) and settled with the family out of court. Not sure what you mean by "nobody will mention this accident", as people regularly bring it up with me. Count me among "those of us who remember the victim." I've thought about her, her family, and the accident every day for the last 22 years.

Dumb headline, dumber story - especially the "accidental bodily injury"... and what is "resisting an order to stop"? Were police present when the driver hit the pedestrian? If so, how come it took them an hour to find and arrest? And "drunk driving"? I know, I know - "suspicion of". Probably no breathalyzer done. Too bad more reporting wasn't done on the status of the hit-and-run victim.

Jail time is warranted in this case, what a stupid woman. I hope she gets the max sentence.
