    The scene of a fatal pedestrian accident this morning at 562 Keolu Drive in Kailua.

An 80-year-old man was killed after he was struck by a pickup truck in Kailua early today.

Police said the pedestrian was walking northeast in a bike lane on Keolu Drive at about 6:30 a.m. today when a white 2015 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck operated by a 57-year-old man traveling in the same direction veered right and struck two parked vehicles and the pedestrian.

He was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he died.

Speed was not involved. Police said drugs and alcohol may be contributing factors.

Police have reopened Keolu Drive from Akiahala Street and Alii Place after it was closed for more than two hours.

Police arrested the driver on the suspicion of first-degree negligent homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant.
