Maui police are asking for help locating a blue-colored Dodge or Chevy full size pick-up truck that fled the scene of a fatal collision on Piilani Highway Sunday night that killed a 16-year-old girl.
The truck is outfitted with an after-market lift and tires, police said.
The vehicle was traveling on Kaiwahine Street around 8:50 p.m. when it made a left turn onto Piilani Highway at the intersection of Uwapo Road in Kihei.
The vehicle struck the girl in a marked crosswalk then fled, police said.
The girl was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition, then later died.
Police are investigating whether speed, drugs or alcohol were factors.
The death is the second hit-and-run crash on Maui this weekend.
On Friday, a white 1995 to 2001 Ford Explorer hit and killed 30-year-old Destiny Delima, of Kahului on Pulehu Road, south of Hookele Street in Kahului.
Delima was walking on the shoulder of the road when she was hit at about 7:55 p.m.
The vehicle fled. Delima died at the scene.
Sunday’s collision was Maui County’s 23rd traffic fatality of the year compared to 21 at the same time last year.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Maui Police Department at 244-6400.
