The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the 39-year-old pedestrian killed in Wednesday’s hit-and-run in Makakilo as Puanani Borreta of Kapolei.
The deadly collision occurred on the southbound lanes of Makakilo Drive. Police said a dark-colored truck struck a woman later identified as Borreta near Palailai Street.
The driver fled the scene.
