HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu police are exploring possible criminal charges in the death of a pedestrian killed April 9.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://bit.ly/1D2PEPI) reports 86-year-old Elsie Cabanatan died of injuries suffered when she was struck by a sedan at about 8:45 a.m. on South King Street.

Police say the 76-year-old driver was in a borrowed car and that excessive speed may have been a factor.

Cabanatan was the mother of nine children who moved from Ewa Beach to Honolulu after her husband’s death.

Police say the sedan driver struck the back of a truck, passed the truck on the driver’s side, ran onto the sidewalk and struck Cabanatan.

The sedan continued into three cars parked at a shopping center.

Alcohol and medical issues have been ruled out as causes of the incident.
