Darin Shimabukuro

Honolulu police have arrested a man suspected of hitting and killing an elderly woman with a motorcycle Wednesday evening.

Police arrested 44-year-old Darin Shimabukuro for accidental death Thursday night at his Hawaii Kai home. He has since been released pending an investigation.

On August 20, at approximately 5:25 p.m., police say an 89-year-old woman was crossing South Beretania Street, just before Punahou Street, when she was hit by a black Enduro-style motorcycle traveling west-bound.

The crash caused the driver to fall off his motorcycle, but police say he was able to recover and fled the scene.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died.
