KALIHI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A pedestrian was critically injured Monday morning after she was struck by a vehicle in Kalihi, Honolulu police said.

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m. on Dillingham Boulevard.

Police said a SUV was heading mauka-bound on Kalihi Street and was making a left turn onto Dillingham Boulevard before hitting the 57-year-old pedestrian.

The woman, who was in a marked crosswalk, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Police arrested the driver, 58-year-old Felix Tolentino, on suspicion of first-degree negligent injury and driving without a license.
