Pedestrian Killed in Kalihi

(KHNL) - A Kalihi man is dead following a traffic crash just a few blocks from his home. It happened at the intersection of Kalihi and Machado Streets at about six Wednesday morning.

Police say Russell Ventura was crossing the street when a car plowed into him. They say the 61-year-old landed on the roadway, and then a truck ran over him.

Investigators do not believe speed was a factor. They're still trying to determine if Ventura was using a crosswalk.

He's the 84th person to die on Oahu's roadways this year, compared to 69 at this same time last year.
