An 81-year-old woman was in critical condition today after a driver ran over her in a bank parking lot on Kapahulu Avenue.
Honolulu police Traffic Division Capt. Stason Tanaka said the driver, a woman in her 70s, apparently didn’t see the victim, who was walking with a friend in the parking lot towards Diamond Head. The driver was making a left turn in the parking lot and apparently slowed for the victim’s friend to walk past her car, but then ran over the victim who was walking behind the friend.
The driver stopped, and the victim was pinned behind the left front wheel.
Firefighters jacked up the car and freed the woman, who was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition.
The collision occurred in the parking lot of the First Hawaiian Bank near Waikiki-Kapahulu Public Library at about 12:50 p.m.
Tanaka said the driver was not injured. Police opened a negligent injury investigation.
