Pali Highway reopened after critical crash

UPDATE: Man dies from injuries after being struck on Pali Highway

A man is in critical condition after he was hit while running across the Pali Highway.

Police say the driver of this pickup truck was heading Kailua bound on the Pali Highway around 10:30 p.m. Saturday when said he saw a man run onto the road just before the tunnel.

“He tried to swerve and avoid the male but struck the male with the front of his vehicle. The male in his early 20′s was rushed to the Queens Medical Center in critical condition. We later learned there was another car that this male apparently jumped out of went running across the street and may have been in a prior argument with occupants of that vehicle. The occupants of that vehicle followed the ambulance and headed towards The Queen’s Hospital,” Honolulu Police Department Lt. Robert Towne said.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured. Police say he wasn’t speeding or drunk.
