A 59-year-old woman, who had been in critical condition at Queen’s Medical Center from injuries she suffered earlier this month when she was hit by a commercial truck near the hospital, died Monday police said.
Police said a Pepsi delivery truck carrying a pallet of canned beverages was backing up on Miller Street when the vehicle struck the woman who was on the roadway at 6:03 a.m. on Nov. 5.
The woman was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition.
The woman was believed to initially be in a wheelchair that belongs to the hospital, police said. The wheelchair was on the sidewalk near the ambulance entrance of the hospital’s emergency room at the time of the accident. It’s unclear how the woman got on the roadway.
There were personal items on the seat of the wheelchair and in a clear plastic bag tied to the one of the handles.
This was Oahu’s 43rd traffic death, compared with 52 at the same time a year ago.
