NUUANU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 75-year-old pedestrian died Tuesday following a traffic accident near the intersection of Nuuanu Avenue and Bates Street, paramedics said.

The man, a Nuuanu resident, was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in extremely critical condition after a blue Ford Focus hit him at approximately 5:15 a.m. He later died. 

Honolulu police arrested 52-year-old Barbara Hazama, the driver, for alleged "negligent homicide" and for "operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant."

Nuuanu Avenue, between Judd and Bates Streets, was closed for about three hours so police could investigate the crash.

This is the 34th traffic-related fatality on Oahu as compared to 35 around this time last year.
