Driver pleads no contest following hit-and-run crash that left woman dead
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The driver of a deadly hit-and-run crash in Makakilo nearly two years ago pleaded no contest in circuit court on Friday.

Officials said she was not in a marked crosswalk.
Hagmoc could face 10 years in prison following the crash.
His sentencing is scheduled for October.
