HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A trolley driver who allegedly hit and killed a pedestrian in a Kakaako crosswalk in November 2018 has changed his plea.
David Kmetz, 54, has now pleaded no contest to the charge of negligent homicide.
The crash killed a 76-year-old pedestrian at the intersection of Auahi and Cooke Streets.
Hawaii News Now previously reported that Kmetz, who was behind the wheel of a Travel Plaza Transportation trolley, was under the influence, and had alcohol on him.
Records showed Kmetz worked for the company for less than a year when the crash happened. He had a record of minor traffic infractions, but no offenses of DUI.
He is set to be sentenced on Sept. 25. He faces up to 10 years behind bars.
