A 29-year-old woman died in a vehicular accident today in Makiki when she exited the side door of a van in motion and struck the road, police said.

She was taken by Honolulu Emergency Medical Services to a hospital, where she died.

The accident took place at 1:45 p.m. near the intersection of Pensacola and King streets.
