A suspected drunk driver plowed through pedestrians in a busy Honolulu intersection Monday night, killing three people and injuring four others, police said.
The driver, identified as a 27-year-old man, was also hospitalized in serious condition, said Honolulu police Lt. James Slayter. Police got a call Monday night that a collision had occurred elsewhere and then got reports that a truck was speeding and swerving in and out of traffic, Slayter said. When the same truck approached Kamakee Street, the driver lost control, cut across a walkway divider and hit pedestrians, a utility pole, and another truck. A 46-year-old woman, a 26-year-old man and a man in his 40s were pronounced dead on the scene. Two other women are hospitalized in critical condition. The driver of the truck that was hit was hospitalized in serious condition. The suspect hasn’t been arrested as he is being treated for his injuries.
