Pedestrian killed by drunk driver in Nanakuli crash identified

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified a woman killed in a deadly pedestrian collision in Nanakuli last week as Alida L. Makanani, 65, of Kapolei.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Farrington Highway and Haleakala Avenue at about 9:15 p.m. Friday.

Police said a vehicle operated by a 36-year-old Kapolei woman was traveling east on the highway when she struck a woman later identified as Makanani.

The driver remained at the scene.

Makanani was taken in critical condition to a hospital where she later died.

Police said Makanani was in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision but was crossing the highway against a “do not walk” sign.

Police said alcohol on the part of the driver was a factor in the collision.

Police arrested her on suspicion of negligent homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant.

This is the 47th traffic-related fatality on Oahu compared to 46 at the same time last year.
