Pedestrian struck 3 times while trying to cross highway is Hawaii’s 92th traffic fatality of 2018

MAILI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash early Tuesday on Farrington Highway that left a 41-year-old pedestrian dead.

Police said the victim was struck by a white pickup truck about 3:50 a.m. as he crossed the highway in Maili, likely in a marked crosswalk.

He was then struck by two other vehicles, one traveling eastbound and the other traveling westbound.

The drivers of those vehicles did stop to render aid.

The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where he later died, police said.

The Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as Donald Callaruda, of Waianae. He died of blunt force injury to the torso, authorities said.

The crash adds to a deadly year on Oahu roads.

Police said Callaruda is the 53rd traffic fatality on Oahu so far this year, compared to 35 at the same time last year.

Statewide, there have been 92 traffic fatalities so far this year, 32 of whom were pedestrians.

It’s unknown if speed or alcohol were factors in the Maili crash, which forced an hours-long closure of Farrington Highway near Linakola Street.

Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the white pick-up truck that fled the scene.

If you have any information please call police at (808) 529-3111.
