    • +1. As I said below – I drive that stretch several nights a week. Don’t understand why people run across the bridge in the center above the freeway so often. It’s a bridge – no real advantage to crossing Keeaumoku overpass in the middle. Kinau St end has cross walks and lights where you can safely cross. YMMV.

  • Is anyone proofing the titles: “Makiki pedestrian collision leaves man in critical condition”? This title implies that two or more pedestrians collided into one another and one was injured.

  • The entire area of Keeaumoku St down to Ala Moana Center is dangerous. I drive that stretch 4-5 nights a week to pick up a friend from work. Difficult to see pedestrians crossing – in or out of crosswalks. Drunk, homeless or just plain careless – people walk or run across the road without regard to traffic.

    I drive and, especially at night, try to keep an eye out for shadows or people outlined by auto and street lighting. Not easy – especially if they are wearing dark clothing.

    About that – what’s up with people walking or jogging at night in dark clothes? Almost impossible to see at times. Haven’t hit anyone yet – peripheral vision at night is better at picking up movement and that’s what prevented several potential accidents. YMMV
