Man, 68, dies after Kapolei pedestrian accident

A 68-year-old pedestrian died after a pickup truck hit him while he was crossing Farrington Highway in Kapolei Tuesday night.

The deadly collision occurred at the intersection of Farrington Highway and Makakilo Drive at about 8:45 p.m.

Honolulu police said a white 2011 Dodge pickup truck driven by a 53-year-old Kapolei man was traveling northbound on Fort Barrette Road which turns into Makakilo Drive.

The pickup truck went through the intersection when it struck the pedestrian who was crossing the highway in a marked crosswalk against a “do not walk” sign.

Police said the pedestrian of Kapolei was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The motorist was not injured.

Police said speed, drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the collision.

This is the 36th traffic-related fatality on Oahu this year compared to 41 at the same time last year.
