Man who died after being struck by trolley near Ala Moana ID'd

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:18 a.m. HST, Jul 24, 2013

The Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the 40-year-old homeless man who died Saturday after he was hit by a trolley near Ala Moana Park as Antonio Lincoln.

The cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries from the accident.

Lincoln was crossing the intersection at Ala Moana Boulevard and Kamakee Street when he was hit by an E Noa Tours trolley traveling Ewa late Thursday night. Police said speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors on the part of the 39-year-old trolley driver, who lives in Kaneohe.

The victim was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition.

Haven't been around there lately, but is there a crosswalk there or was he just walking across the street at an uncontrolled intersection?

SA no need to identify where driver lives. If pedestrian fault should list under different classification instead of lumping all accidents together...this will provide accountability data...

Guess SA could have said he resided in the state of Hawaii. So we have already blamed the pedestrian. Just cause there is no apparent alcohol or other impairment does not immediately mean it was the pedestrian's fault.

Previous reports stated that the trolley had the green light.

"At both signalized and unsignalized intersections, there is an implied (legal) crosswalk for pedestrians at each leg, whether or not the crosswalk is marked." This is typical in many states including California and Florida - I didn't look it up for Hawaii but if it doesn't apply to Hawaii, there would be plenty of places where you can't cross the street unless you walked a good distance.

Those trolley drivers are the worst drivers I have ever seen - they drive too fast, don't stop properly at corners, and intimidate pedestrians by driving right up to them until they have to run or jump out of the way. The City and HPD need to levy big fines against them for driving in an unsafe manner and ignoring driving laws.
