Police said the a blue 1995 Chevy Tahoe was making a right turn onto Young Street from a parking garage of the Medical Arts Building at 1010 South King St. about 7:35 p.m. when the vehicle struck the man.

Capt. Ben Moszkowicz of the Honolulu Police Department’s Traffic Division said it’s unclear whether the man was already on the ground or walking at the time of the crash.
