Police say a 52-year-old Honolulu man was going northbound onto Koko Head Avenue from Waialae Avenue when he hit the 21 year old while he was on a marked crosswalk.

Honolulu EMS treated the pedestrian at the scene and took him to the hospital in critical condition.

Police say at this time, speed and drugs do not appear to contributing factors, but an investigation suggests alcohol may have been a factor in both the driver and the pedestrian.

The 21-year-old man fought for his life for nine days before passing on June 8, according to the Vehicle Homicide Section who received the news from the Medical Examiner’s office.
