WAIANAE, HI – Police said three pedestrians were struck by a driver who left the scene in Honolulu Saturday morning.
According to a Hawaii News Now report, it happened on Farrington Highway in the Waianae area at about 3:11 a.m. An investigation determined that three young men were fighting in the roadway when they were struck by a driver going east in the left lane. The impact sent one of the victims into a parked, unoccupied vehicle on the side of the road.
That pedestrian, age 18, was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. Another victim, a 19-year-old was hospitalized in serious condition. The third pedestrian, age 20, was in good condition.
The driver, who was not identified, struck a parked vehicle and then kept going east on Farrington Highway without stopping to help. The person may have been driving a white pickup truck with pipe racks, police said.
Anyone with further information on the hit-and-run was asked to contact the Honolulu Police Department Traffic Division.
