Oahu recorded its first traffic fatality of the new year when a 67-year-old pedestrian was hit by a vehicle while in a marked crosswalk on Punchbowl Street in Honolulu Friday night.
The collision occurred at about 10:30 p.m. near the Miller Street intersection and the Queen’s Medical Center, police said.
A 58-year-old Honolulu male was driving north on Punchbowl Street when he struck the pedestrian.
The victim was taken to the hospital, initially in good condition, but his condition deteriorated and he died, police said.
His name was not released.
Police said a preliminary investigation indicated that neither speed, drugs nor alcohol were contributing factors.
