Honolulu, HI – Pedestrian Fatally Injured in Hit & Run on Kapiolani Blvd

February 15, 2023

Honolulu, HI (February 15, 2023) – A teenage pedestrian was fatally injured in a pedestrian accident in Honolulu. The crash was a hit-and-run that occurred Wednesday morning, February 15. 

Sources say the collision happened on Kapiolani Boulevard when a silver pickup truck struck two teenage girls. The incident took place at around 6:45 a.m.

Both girls were transported to the hospital with injuries, one critical. Advanced life support was administered to the critically injured patient at the scene, but the girl sadly succumbed to her injuries. 

HPD, HFD, and EMS were seen rendering aid at the crash site. Kapiolani Boulevard was closed in both directions between Ward Avenue and Kamakee Street. 

We want to offer our sincere condolences to the deceased victim’s family at this time. 

Hawaii Pedestrian Crashes

When an area is used frequently by both drivers and pedestrians, the odds of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle increase dramatically. It only takes a single reckless or negligent driver to critically injure or even end the life of a pedestrian. 

Even though a very small percentage of pedestrian-involved accidents are committed with malice, most of them are the result of everyday driver negligence. 

The most common forms of driver negligence in Hawaii include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Distracted drivers
  • Disregarding traffic signs or other driving laws
  • Failing to yield at crosswalks
  • Lack of turn signals
  • Failing to drive appropriately in bad weather
  • Failing to show due care when children are present
