Waianae victim was hit twice, then dragged

Miguel Torres appeared in court Friday on attempted murder charges.

We’re learning more about a hit-and-run case in Waianae that left a man in critical condition.

Witnesses say Henry Akuna was run over twice by a vehicle being driven by Miguel Torres. Akuna and his girlfriend were walking toward the parking lot of a Waianae apartment complex when a car accelerated toward the couple, hitting both of them.

Several witnesses saw Torres then reverse his car and hit Akuna a second time and dragged him for about half a mile.

Witnesses also identified Torres in a photo lineup.

He was arrested in Kalihi on Wednesday and remains in police custody on $200,000 bail.
