A 49-year-old pedestrian has died after she was struck by a vehicle in Kahului late Tuesday, the Maui Police Department said.
This is the second pedestrian death on Maui roads in two days.
The collision occurred on Puunene Avenue near Hololea Street at about 11:30 p.m.
A police preliminary investigation revealed a woman was walking in the middle of the roadway on Puunene Avenue when a blue 2021 Ford Bronco traveling northbound on the roadway struck the pedestrian.
Police said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The Ford driver, a 49-year-old Kahului man, was not injured.
Traffic investigators do not believe speed, alcohol or drugs were contributing factors in the collision.
This is the third traffic-related fatality that occurred in Maui County this year compared to eight at the same time last year.
This is also the second pedestrian death on the island in two days.
