WAIKIKI, HI – A teenage pedestrian was hospitalized after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Waikiki Tuesday night, the Honolulu Star-Adviser reports.

Honolulu police said the victim, an 18-year-old male, was attempting to cross outside of a crosswalk on Prince Edward Street at about 9:30 p.m.

He was struck by a vehicle that was going in the wrong direction on the one-way street.  The driver left the scene without stopping to help and was last seen making a right turn onto Uluniu Avenue.  The driver is now being sought and may have been driving a black multipurpose vehicle, according to investigators.
