A female in her late 20s or early 30s has died after she was struck by a vehicle on Kamehameha Highway around 4:22 a.m. Saturday, police said.

According to the Honolulu Police Department, the collision occurred near Pali Momi Street fronting Pearlridge shopping center.

Officials say the pedestrian, of a Honolulu address, was crossing Kamehameha Highway when she was struck by a vehicle in the eastbound lanes.

"We believe she was crossing in the makai direction when she was struck," Honolulu police Lt. Bobby Towne said.

The driver of the vehicle, a Aiea woman in her early 20s, was not injured. "Basically she didn't see the female until it was too late," Towne said.
