    Police closed off the scene of a critical pedestrian accident this morning in Kahala.

    A tow truck hauled away the car involved in a pedestrian accident this morning in Kahala that left a man in his 80s critically injured.

Paramedics took an 89-year-old man to the hospital Saturday morning in critical condition after he was hit by a car while crossing an intersection in Kahala.

The man was crossing Hunakai Street in a marked crosswalk alongside Kilauea Avenue at about 4:55 a.m. when he was struck by a Honda Civic driven by a 24-year-old woman, according to Lt. Bobby Towne of the police department’s Traffic Investigation Division. The man, a Kahala resident, was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition, Towne said.

The woman, who lives on the mainland but is here visiting family in Kahala, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Towne said. Hunakai Street had been closed from Koae Street to Kilauea Avenue during the traffic investigation but has since been reopened.

Speed is not considered a factor in the accident, Towne said.
