71-year-old woman dies after Kalihi pedestrian accident

 

Update 3:50 p.m.:

 Mayor Caldwell issued the following statement Thursday afternoon regarding a pedestrian accident on North King Street in Kalihi near Gulick Ave:

I was deeply saddened to hear about this tragic accident and want to extend our heartfelt sympathy to the victim's family. The City will be cooperating fully in the pending investigation.

Update 9:23 a.m.:

Honolulu police have opened a negligent homicide investigation after a 71-year-old woman was killed after getting hit by a city garbage truck on Gulick Avenue at around 5:50 a.m. on Thursday.

Police said the woman, who was apparently walking to work nearby, had the walk signal as she was heading eastbound on Gulick Avenue.

The 57-year-old female driver of the garbage truck was turning left from North King Street to Gulick Avenue. She told police she didn't see the victim and hit her with the truck's front tires.

The victim was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition. She was later pronounced dead at approximately 8:45 a.m.

HPD Lt. Bobby Towne said speed and alcohol are unlikely factors, but visibility may be an issue.

Update 9 a.m.:

Honolulu police confirmed that the victim who was struck by a garbage truck has died. The woman was 71 years old, not 74 as police originally reported.

Update 8:30 a.m.:

North King Street at Gulick Avenue has been reopened, according to the Honolulu Police Department.

Original story:

Honolulu police closed North King Street at Gulick Avenue in the westbound direction after a critical pedestrian accident on Thursday.

A 74-year-old female was taken to the trauma center in critical condition after being struck by a garbage truck at approximately 5:50 a.m., according to paramedics.

The victim has not yet been identified.
