Man Dies After Hit and Run Accident

Honolulu police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run Friday morning after a 75 year old man was hit by a van in Kalihi overnight.

The accident happened just after midnight.

Police say the van hit the man while he was crossing the street, then took off.

Honolulu police closed off King street between Liliha street and Pua lane in both directions, to investigate.

Paramedics say the 75 year old man was taken to Queens Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.

Police say speed appears to be a factor.
