Pedestrian, 61, killed after being struck by car on Farrington Highway identified as Waianae man

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the 61-year-old pedestrian who died after being struck by a car in Nanakuli Tuesday night as Jimmy K. Nunuha of Waianae.

An autopsy is expected to be performed today to determine the exact cause of death.

Police said a 2012 Dodge sedan driven by a 44-year-old man was traveling east on Farrington Highway with three passengers when the pedestrian attempted to cross the highway near Black Rock Beach Park shortly after 6 p.m.

Vehicles traveling west on the highway stopped to let the pedestrian pass when the man ran into the path of the Dodge, police said.

City Emergency Medical Services paramedics treated the man, later identified as Nunuha, and transported him by ambulance in critical condition to a hospital, where he died, police said.

Police said Nunuha was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision.

The Dodge driver and his passengers — a woman and two minors — did not sustain any injuries and remained at the scene.

Police said speed, alcohol or drugs were not involved.

This is the 48th traffic-related fatality on Oahu compared with 46 at the same time last year.

Police contra-flowed the highway for about two hours as they responded and investigated.
