Terry McDougall returned Friday to the crosswalk where a jeep hit her in May and held a sign urging drivers to slow down along a dangerous stretch of Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe.

“I just hope this will make people open their eyes,” said McDougall, 45, who was hit in the same crosswalk where a hit-and-run driver killed Lany Salva, 38, on Tuesday. “Pay attention.”

She was joined by dozens of other residents calling for drivers to watch out for pedestrians on one part of a half-mile stretch of Kamehameha Highway that has seen four pedestrian fatalities in less than seven years.

Salva died Tuesday night after she was hit in a crosswalk on Kamehameha, next to Pahia Road, where she lived with her husband and three children, ages 18, 16, and 2. She had been heading to her job at Aloha gas station on the other side of the street. Police did not make any arrests by Friday afternoon.
