Man was in marked crosswalk ahead of fatal pedestrian crash in Nanakuli

NANAKULI, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 78-year-old man died following a pedestrian crash in Nanakuli on Monday morning, Emergency Medical Services said.

According to officials, it happened on Farrington Highway near the intersection with Haleakala Avenue at around 4:45 a.m.

The office of the Honolulu Medical Examiner identified the victim Monday afternoon as Kimo Saffery-Tripp, a Waianae resident.

Investigators on scene said Saffery-Tripp appeared to be in a marked crosswalk at the time of the crash. Police authorities say he was struck by a vehicle traveling in the eastbound direction.

The driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene of the crash following the accident. Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors, authorities said.

Honolulu police set up a contraflow in the area while an investigation was underway, but roadways in the area have since reopened.

Police officials say the accident was the 42nd fatal incident on Oahu roadways this year, compare to 41 on the same date a year ago.
