Pedestrian killed in Moanalua Freeway crash identified


    Moanalua Freeway

A man who died Saturday after being struck on the freeway in Red Hill was identified today as 43-year-old Efren Agustin of Honolulu.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified Agustin and said he died of multiple blunt force injuries. The manner of his death was pending an investigation.

Police said at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old Honolulu man was driving a 2015 Scion east-bound from the H-1 Freeway extension onto Moanalua Freeway when for “unknown reasons” Agustin ran across the freeway and directly into the path of the driver. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he died.

He was Oahu’s 58th traffic fatality in 2016 compared to 48 at the same time in 2015.

Police said Moanalua Freeway in the town-bound direction was closed for about three hours while officers investigated.
