Suspect arrested in attempted murder case in Waikiki

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:51 p.m. HST, May 15, 2014

Honolulu police opened an attempted murder investigation Wednesday after a 73-year-old woman was struck near Kapiolani Park by a car driven by a woman who fled the scene on foot.

The older woman was in serious condition with a head injury following the 11:40 a.m. incident at 2696 Kalakaua Ave., according to an Emergency Medical Services Division report.

About 7:15 p.m., police arrested a 30-year-old woman on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder.

When firefighters arrived at 11:44 a.m., they found the woman on the ground with a cut to her head and the suspect's car with damage to the backend, Honolulu fire spokesman David Jenkins said. A bystander apparently had used a crowbar to alert the driver so that she wouldn't hit the woman a second time, he said.

The woman had a cut to the back of her head and bruises on the rest of the body, Jenkins said.

Was the woman in a crosswalk? Was the driver of the vehicle impaired? Was the driver charged? Great reporting!

The information you seek probably is either not available or unknown at this time. The SA just wanted to get a jump on the story, so I'm sure more information will be forthcoming later. You can't really blame the SA for shoddy reporting if the information isn't available to them yet. The accident just happened.

I agree that it's pretty sloppy reporting. By the way, the "old lady" is a brilliant astronomer/software engineer who pioneered the use of computerized tracking for astronomical telescopes...
