Kauai police are asking for the public’s help in locating the driver in a hit-and-run crash that killed a man in Kalaheo.

The victim’s body was found by a police officer driving home on Halewili Road at about 11:10 p.m. Sunday, police said.

A preliminary investigation found the man, possibly in his mid-twenties, was walking in the eastbound lane of Halewili Road when he was apparently struck by an oncoming vehicle, police said.

The vehicle involved in the crash was not at the scene when police arrived.

The man’s body was taken to Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police said an autopsy is pending.

Police closed Halewili Road in both directions from about 11:20 p.m. Sunday to 3:45 a.m. today to investigate.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call the Kauai Police Department’s Traffic Safety Section at 241-1618.
