Man, 82, dies in Palisades accident
An 82-year-old man died Tuesday after his car rolled out of the driveway of his Pacific Palisades home and struck a light pole.
Police traffic investigators said they do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the 12:57 p.m. incident on 'Auhuhu Street, just west of Komo Mai Drive. They said the man's blue Mercury Sable station wagon appeared to have been rolling without power, making it difficult for the driver to steer or brake.
The driver was taken to Kapi'olani Medical Center at Pali Momi, where he was pronounced dead. It was the 16th traffic death on O'ahu this year, compared to 34 at this time a year ago.
