A pedestrian died from her injuries after she was hit by a vehicle, driven by a 60-year-old Waianae man, while crossing Farrington Highway near Puhano Road Sunday night.
Paramedics took the woman, believed to be in her 40s or 50s, to the hospital in critical condition following the accident at about 10 p.m., according to an Emergency Medical Services report.
Police said she died at the hospital. She had not been identified as of Sunday night.
Police said the woman was not in a marked crosswalk.
Speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash.
The accident is the 27th traffic fatality this year, the same number of traffic deaths at this time last year.
The death comes just days after community members and officials met Thursday to discuss ways of improving pedestrian safety on Farrington Highway, following two deaths in the last three months.
On April 24, Kaulana Werner, a 19-year-old former Kamehameha Schools wide receiver, was killed when he was struck by a vehicle along Farrington Highway near Laumania Avenue in Nanakuli.
Robert Sadamaru, 79, died on May 28 after he was hit by a truck while in a crosswalk on Farrington Highway near Old Government Road.
Several residents suggested installing better lighting and reflector lights, repainting signs and road lines, and educating drivers and pedestrians could help in decreasing the number of accidents across the Waianae Coast.
Others said eliminating some crosswalks not located by traffic signals, relocating some bus stops, providing flags for people to wave while crossing the highway, installing red-light cameras and stepping up police presence and enforcement would also help to make Farrington safer for pedestrians and motorists.
