Aiea pedestrian killed by colliding vehicles


HONOLULU (AP) — A woman standing on an Aiea street corner was struck and killed by a car that collided with a pickup and left the road.

Honolulu police say the small sedan Wednesday morning struck the woman at Moanalua Road and Kaonohi Street.

Honolulu police traffic Lt. Bobby Towne says the crash caused the vehicles to veer right and strike the woman.

The 77-year-old man driving the sedan was not immediately aware that he had hit a pedestrian.

The woman was pushed into thick bushes and plants and was not immediately discovered.

Friends of the woman say she lived in a high-rise building at the intersection and walked to a bus stop every morning to ride to work.

Police have opened a negligent homicide investigation.
