The initial call came in at 7:59 am Wednesday morning and HFD Crews from the Central Fire Station along with HPD Officers from the Hilo Patrol and Traffic Enforcement Unit (TEU) responded to the scene located on Hualalai Street fronting St. Joseph's School in Hilo.
Upon the arrival of emergency crews, reports came in from numerous parties reporting a vehicle struck a pedestrian (described as a female in her 60s) on Hualalai Street fronting St. Joseph's School. Immediately following the collision, bystanders immediately provided basic medical care to the female patient until emergency crews arrived at the scene.
