Waianae woman dies after crashing into power pole


A 53-year-old Waianae woman died Saturday night after crashing into a power pole.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office has identified her as Kristina Kyle.

Police said she lost control of her vehicle and ran into a dirt shoulder of the south-bound lane of Waianae Valley Road about 200 feet from Plantation Road at around 11:30 p.m.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Speed, alcohol, and drugs appear to be factors in the crash, police said.

This is Oahu’s 31st traffic fatality this year, compared to 30 at the same time last year.
