KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 73-year-old Honolulu man has died after he was struck by a car in Kalihi while crossing School St. and Houghtailing St. late Friday evening. 

Honolulu police say the driver of a 1994 Toyota Corolla, a 56-year-old Waipahu woman, was traveling westbound on School St. and Houghtailing St. when she struck the man in a marked crosswalk. 

The man sustained major head and bodily injuries. 

He was transported to Queen's Medical Center in critical condition, where he later died. 

Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this accident, according to HPD. 

This is the 50th traffic fatality for 2014, compared to 45 in 2013. 

Police closed School St. in both directions from Houghtailing St. to Kapalama St. around 12:13 a.m. Roads were reopened around 2:37 a.m.
