Woman arrested in connection with fatal hit-and-run crash

Police arrested a 21-year-old woman Saturday night in connection with a hit-and-run crash in Makaha that left two men dead.

The woman was arrested at about 9:30 p.m. in Nanakuli for investigation of two counts of first-degree negligent homicide, two counts of fleeing the scene of a deadly accident, and one count of fleeing the scene of an accident involving injuries.

The Monday night crash killed Jonah Ragsdale, 21, and Daniel Mole, 23, as they were repairing a tire on the side of Farrington Highway.

Police said the men were on the eastbound shoulder of the highway at about 7:40 p.m. when a 2013 Volkswagen Passat struck them. The driver was traveling east on the highway when the Passat hit the men about a mile east of Makua Cave.

The driver continued on without stopping to render aid.

Ragsdale died at the scene and Mole was taken in critical condition to Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, where he died.
