Woman sitting on highway dies after car hits her

A car struck and fatally injured a woman who was sitting on Highway 11 in South Kona on Tuesday night, Hawaii County police said.

The woman appeared to be intoxicated, police said.

She was identified as Jasmin K. Robertson, 30, of Honau­nau.

Police said Robertson was sitting in the northbound lane near the 107-mile marker when she was hit by a BMW sedan driven by a 50-year-old Captain Cook man at about 6:30 p.m.

The driver was not injured.

Fire Department rescue personnel took Robertson to Kona Community Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 7:15 p.m.

Traffic Enforcement Unit officers ordered an autopsy.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call officer Larry Flowers at 326-4646, ext. 229.

The traffic fatality was the 36th on Hawaii island this year, compared with 18 at the same time last year.
