Pearl City man killed crossing highway


HONOLULU (AP) — Police said a Pearl City man died after he tried to cross a major highway near Ko Olina.

Another media outlet reported the 59-year-old man was struck Friday night while crossing Farrington Highway from north to south, toward Ko Olina Resort.

Authorities said a 24-year-old Waipahu woman driving westbound in a Kia Forte struck him shortly before 9:30 p.m.

Police say he was not in a marked crosswalk. Authorities are looking into whether speeding was a factor but alcohol doesn’t appear to be involved.

They have not yet released the victim’s name.
