According to police, the boy was backing out of a parking stall at the Nisei Veterans Memorial Center in Kahului when the driver’s side door struck the woman, knocking her to the ground. The car then collided with another vehicle that was stopped behind it.
The woman was transported to Maui Memorial Medical center in critical condition.
Neither the boy nor the 74-year-old driver of the second vehicle was injured.
