Hit-run suspect turns self in
A driver of a sport utility vehicle that critically injured a pedestrian on a sidewalk early Saturday near Aloha Tower turned himself in to police Saturday night.
The 25-year-old Moiliili man was arrested for investigation of failure to render aid and causing serious injury. He was later released pending investigation. The 39-year-old victim suffered head and torso injuries and was in critical condition at the Queen's Medical Center.
Police said the SUV jumped a curb in front of Aloha Tower Marketplace before hitting the man at 2:07 a.m. The SUV stopped briefly and then drove away toward Diamond Head.
In another case, police are still looking for the driver of a light-colored sport utility vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run case in Iwilei Wednesday night.
A 79-year-old man was crossing Dillingham Boulevard near Kaaahi Street and was outside of a crosswalk when he was hit by the SUV.
The victim fell into the path of another vehicle, which dragged him about 30 feet, police said. The man's identity was not released.
