Hawaii Island police have reclassified a traffic death to a negligent homicide investigation and are looking for a vehicle that may have fled the scene after the crash.

Breanna Fujimoto, 20, of Kealakekua died Sept. 4, a day after she was involved in a collision on Hawaii Belt Road. During the initial investigation, police said Fujimoto was traveling south on the highway in a 2016 Honda sedan when she crossed the centerline and hit a 2015 Nissan SUV head-on, just south of the Kamehameha III Highway intersection.

Fujimoto was taken to Kona Community Hospital where she died from her injuries.

Detectives have since learned a green Subaru or Isuzu sports utility vehicle may have caused Fujimoto to cross the centerline just before the collision with the Nissan. Police said the green SUV left the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or the green SUV leaving the scene is asked to call Officer Justin Hooser at 326-4646 or CrimeStoppers at 961-8300.
