According to EMS, who assisted with a death pronouncement of the driver, the woman was involved in a single-vehicle collision on Tuesday, June 1, at approximately 7:30 a.m. along Farrington Highway near the Waianae Treatment Plant.
The Honolulu Police Department says she appeared to be traveling west when her sedan left the roadway and collided with a curb. The vehicle continued forward and proceeded to collide with a guard rail, resulting in her death.
At this time, speed, alcohol or drugs do not appear to be contributing factors in the collision. HPD says distracted driving may have been a factor.
