The Hawaii Fire Department (HFD) along with the Hawaii Police Department (HPD) responded to a report of an auto vs pedestrian collision at the Honokohau Small Boat Harbor in Kailua-Kona Friday afternoon (March 19th).
The initial call came in at 2:10 pm Friday afternoon and HFD Crews from the Kailua Fire Station along with HPD Officers from the Kona Patrol responded to the scene located at 74-300 block of Kealakehe Parkway near the North Boat Ramp in Kailua-Kona.
Upon the arrival of emergency crews, reports came from bystanders reporting a pedestrian (described as a male in his 40s) was run over by a 1994 Ford Full-Size near the Kona Sailing Club at Honokohau Small Boat Harbor. It was noted that the male patient was working on the pickup truck at the time of the apparent collision. The patient reported having suffered critical injuries to the head.
Once emergency crews arrived at the scene, HFD and HPD personnel immediately began life-saving measures on the male patient and later extricated him to an awaiting HFD Medic. HFD Medics then transported the male patient to the Kona Community Hospital in critical condition to an awaiting trauma team for further medical treatment.
HPD continues to investigate the incident.
