Oahu pedestrian fatalities climb to 28 after Waipahu man dies

A 70-year-old Waipahu man who was struck by a vehicle near the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport earlier this month has died.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Marciano Dominguez. The exact cause of his death is pending.

Police said Dominguez was walking in a marked crosswalk on Kamehameha Highway at the intersection with Rodgers Boulevard when he was struck by a Hyundai sedan being driven by a 29-year-old man.

The crash occurred at about 6:10 a.m. Dec. 21.

Dominguez was taken to a hospital in serious condition and died Thursday, police said.

The driver was not hurt and remained at the scene for the police investigation.

Dominguez’s death brings the year’s total for pedestrian fatalities to 28, the highest total going back to at least 2007.

The second highest annual total in that period was in 2014 when 25 pedestrians died. Last year, only 13 pedestrians were killed on Oahu.

This year has also seen a higher number of traffic fatalities on Oahu. Dominguez was the 63rd traffic fatality this year compared to 47 traffic fatalities at this time last year.
