The Honolulu Medical Examiner has identified the woman who was killed in a pedestrian accident in Waikiki Tuesday, as 73-year-old Haruko Okabe of Honolulu. She was not in a crosswalk when she stepped off at Kalia Road, fronting the Hilton Hawaiian Village at 9:30 a.m. and was hit by a Polynesian Adventure Tours bus driven by a 45-year-old man. Okabe was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition with massive head injuries and she died there a short time later. Police say it doesn't appear that speed, alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.
