A 22-year-old woman, who police said may have been intoxicated and speeding, was arrested after she allegedly ran down and killed a former Kamehameha Schools football player Sunday night.
The medical examiner said the official cause of death for Kaulana Werner, 19, of Waianae, is pending the outcome of an autopsy.
The woman was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and causing Werner’s accidental death.
Charges are pending.
Police said Werner was not in a marked crosswalk on Farrington Highway near Pohakunui Avenue when the woman’s car, which was headed east, hit him at 8:36 p.m.
Police said he died at the scene.
Speed and alcohol appear to be factors, police said.
Werner was a second-team All-ILH selection at wide receiver in 2014. He had a team-high 30 receptions for 417 yards and three touchdowns in 2014.
Werner is listed as a defensive back on the roster of Sterling College in Kansas where he registered as a business major in the fall.
This was Oahu’s 14th traffic death, compared to 17 at the same time last year.
