Woman who hit pedestrian arrested


HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police arrested a woman accused of hitting an elderly man while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The 89-year-old man was hit while walking in a marked crosswalk about 5 a.m. Saturday in Kahala.

Lt. Bobby Towne said the 24-year-old driver was making a left turn at the intersection of Hunakai Street and Kilauea Avenue.

Towne said the woman appeared to have been drinking. He said while she had a green light, the woman should have yielded to the pedestrian.

The victim was taken to a hospital with critical injuries.
