HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police said a woman’s body was found on the H-2 freeway in connection to a fatal hit-and-run crash Saturday morning.

Authorities said the incident occurred around 4:15 a.m. prior to the Ka Uka Boulevard offramp.

According to police, it was reported that a female pedestrian who has yet to be identified was walking alongside the H-2 Freeway when she stepped into the lanes of traffic and was struck by an unknown motorist.

The unknown motorist fled and the female pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said.

Officials said the unknown motorist was possibly operating a dark-colored late model Honda sedan with damages to the front headlight and driver side side-view mirror.

It is unknown if either speed, drugs, or alcohol were contributing factors.
