Pedestrian dies after being hit by car in Aiea

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:48 a.m. HST, Oct 24, 2013

A 63-year-old woman was killed Wednesday morning after being run over by a car as she stood on the sidewalk in front of Macy's department store at Pearlridge Center.

Honolulu Police Lt. Robert Towne said that two vehicles, traveling west on Moanalua Road, collided at 6:10 a.m.

One of the vehicles, a Ford Ranger truck driven by a 54-year-old man, hit a Toyota Corolla driven by a 77-year-old man. The driver of the Corolla then drove onto the sidewalk, hitting the 63-year-old woman who was taken to Pali Momi Medical Center in critical condition where she died.

The driver of the Toyota received minor injuries and refused treatment.

How come the SA didn't say "allegedly" hit by car?!

I make it a point never to stand at the edge of a sidewalk and in fact, make sure there's something between me and oncoming traffic like a tree or light pole just in case. I see too many people standing at the very edge or even at the strip below the curb.

Very sound advice...and it's nothing but instinctual common sense. The amount of people who are too complacent here just makes me shake my head all the time.

Good point. Long trucks and buses can't make the rear tires sometimes, and it goes onto the curb.

Weird thing is KHON is reporting the woman was in her 40's and SA reports 63. That's a big age difference!

Media can't get their info correct. SA, KITV and Hawaii News Now says the woman was 63. KHON says 40's. SA says she was on the sidewalk in front of Macy's. Look at all the pics and it shows she was at the corner of Kaonohi and Moanalua Road by one of the tower's. Hawaii News Now this morning said she was waiting at the crosswalk trying go to the Swap Meet when the Toyota hit her. The car ended up in the bushes in front of the tower. It is far away from the sidewalk in front of Macy's. That's why I check all the news sites and try to see who has the right info.

Unfortunate Accident. However, going west on Moanalua Road at the intersection of Kaonohi Street where the accident occurred is very poorly designed. This dangerous intersection when the lanes merge right was brought up to the prior Director of Transportation at a meeting at a nearby Elementary School several years ago and he said he would look into it, but nothing was ever done. When it rains, I have seen cars go into the wrong lane when crossing the intersection and nearly cause accidents because the lines cannot be seen and the lanes merge right unknowingly.

Macy's does not have a face on Moanalua Rd. Macy's is on Kaonohi St. So if the victim was standing in front of Macy's, how did the car traveling on Moanalua Rd. hit the woman?

SA got the wrong location. If they posted a photo like the other news sites, it shows that it was up at the intersection, and right in front of the condo. The Toyota was in the bushes by the sidewalk.
