HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man killed after he was hit by a vehicle while attempting to cross Farrington Highway in Nanakuli Tuesday night has been identified by the Medical Examiner’s office.
He was identified on Wednesday as 61-year-old Jimmy Nunuha.
Police said the crash happened just after 6 p.m. near Black Rocks Beach. Nunuha attempted to cross the highway from mauka to makai when he was hit by an eastbound Dodge sedan.
Westbound vehicles stopped to let him cross when he dashed into the eastbound lanes, and was ultimately hit, police said.
Within the sedan was the 44-year-old male driver, and two juveniles, one boy and one girl. They all were not injured in the crash.
Police say Nunuha was not in a marked crosswalk at the time. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he later died.
Investigators added that the driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and didn’t appear to have been speeding.
This marks Oahu’s 48th Traffic Fatality of 2020, compared to 46 at the same time last year.
The investigation is on going.
