A 43-year-old man has died after he was struck by a vehicle in Waipahu over the weekend.

Positive identification is pending.

At about 6:50 p.m. Sunday, police said a vehicle operated by a 32-year-old man was traveling south on Mokuola Street when the vehicle struck the pedestrian near the intersection of Mokuola and Waipahu streets.

Emergency Medical Services transported him to an area hospital in critical condition and upgraded to serious condition.
