(Via Star Advertiser)

A 67-year-old woman was killed this morning while in a marked crosswalk in Kalihi.

Honolulu Police Lt. Robert Towne said a negligent homicide investigation has been started following the 6 a.m. accident on North King St. near Gulick Ave.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the accident, Towne said.

The victim was in a marked crosswalk on North King Street when she was struck by a Chevy pickup truck driven by a man in his 40s, Towne said.

Paramedics took the woman in critical condition to Queen’s Medical Center, where she died.

Police closed North King Street between Gulick and Mokauea streets until just before 8 a.m. as Traffic Division officers investigated the accident scene.

This was Oahu’s 10th traffic death, compared to 11 at the same time last year.
