Medical Examiner identifies pedestrian killed in Kapolei

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the 55-year-old woman who died in a collision near Walmart in Kapolei Tuesday night as Lusiana K. Vallejos.

Vallejos of Kapolei died of multiple blunt force injuries in the crash. The manner of death was classified as an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Capt. Ben Moszkowicz of the Honolulu Police Department’s Traffic Division said Vallejos was walking southbound across Farrington Highway, approximately 800 feet east of Fort Barrette Road at about 7:30 p.m. when she was struck by a white 2005 Chevy Colorado.

The pickup operated by a 67-year-old Kapolei woman was traveling Waianae-bound on the highway at the time of the crash. Neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash.

Vallejos died at the scene.

Moszkowicz said Vallejos was likely distracted and not paying attention when she walked across the roadway.

She was not in a crosswalk.
