Woman killed in pedestrian crash on S. King St.

S. King Street

A woman was killed in McCully after a crash that involved multiple vehicles Thursday morning.

It happened at 8:45 a.m. on South King Street, just past McCully Street.

According to police, a car was traveling eastbound in the far right lane when it rear-ended a pickup truck. It proceeded to drive around the truck, travel up onto the sidewalk in front of the truck.

That’s when, police say, the car hit a woman in her 80s who was walking westbound on the sidewalk. She was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition and died.

The car also hit three more cars parked in a private parking lot, police said. The driver was not hurt.

“The driver of the vehicle was a male in his 70s and he was borrowing a friend’s car,” said Lt. Carlene Lau of the Honolulu Police Department.

Lau says alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, nor do they believe the man suffered a medical condition. They are still investigating whether speed was a factor.

“He said something to us, but I can’t reveal it at this time as part of our investigation,” Lau said.

Lau said the woman lived nearby.

No one was in any of the parked vehicles and no other injuries were reported, she said.
