A man, fleeing on foot after stealing two 12-packs of beer, died after being run over by a tour bus in Waikiki last night, police said.
The 21-year-old man, with no local address, was running away after stealing the beer from the ABC store at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki hotel when he tripped and fell at about 10:37 p.m., police said. The man dropped the beer on Koa Street and kept running, but tripped again.
Police said a yellow MCI tour bus, owned by Travel Plaza Transportation, had just made a legal right turn and the man fell under the rear wheel of the bus and was dragged 100 feet.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
