HONOLULU (AP) - Police say a tour bus struck and killed a 73-year-old woman who was jaywalking near a Waikiki resort.

The woman was taken to Queen’s Medical Center, where she died. The medical examiner’s office on Wednesday identified her as Haruko Okabe of Honolulu.

Police say the woman was jaywalking near the Hilton Hawaiian Village Tuesday morning when she was hit by a Polynesian Adventure Tours bus.

The company says it assigned an employee to help the victim’s family.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://ow.ly/ugSpr ) reports this is Oahu’s fifth pedestrian death this year. The woman is the fourth person age 67 or older to die this year while walking on Oahu streets.
