KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Just days before Thanksgiving a year ago, Mariah Danforth-Moore, a student at Hawaii Pacific University's Windward campus, was killed while walking in a crosswalk on her way back to her dorm room at night.

On Tuesday, friends, family and other well wishes had a message for drivers passing by the campus near where the accident happened: Pay attention, and drive with caution.

Mariah's father says the intersection still seems unsafe.

"Just by standing here at this hour, the cars filtering in and out, coming out of the parking lot here, trying to cross, people trying to turn into HPU… It's a cluster," said Stephen Danforth.

After Mariah's death, the state tried to make the crosswalk safer by installing a pedestrian light, but students say it may actually cause more accidents because it's high up and drivers may be looking at the light and not the people crossing.

To help make this intersection safer, Mariah's parents donated $20,000 thousand dollars, which is being matched by HPU and her family's lawyers. So far, the fund has $61,000 thousand dollars, all of which is going towards future safety improvements.

    Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election.
