A pedestrian was critically injured in an early morning collision near the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
Police said a black 2017 Volkswagen sedan operated by a 40-year-old Waianae man was traveling westbound on N. Nimitz Highway when he collided with a 37-year-old man of no local address near the intersection of Ohohia Street at about 1:15 a.m. today.
The pedestrian was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision.
Emergency Medical Services treated him and took him to a hospital in critical condition. The driver refused treatment.
Police said alcohol appears to be a factor on the part of the pedestrian. Speed and drugs were not involved.
Lt. James Slayter of the Honolulu Police Department’s Traffic Division said, “With the holiday weekend coming up, we urge everyone to be responsible while commuting. Whether you’re on four wheels, two wheels or even if you are on foot, being impaired on our roadways can be extremely dangerous for you and everyone around you.”
Police are continuing their investigation.
