HPD Opens Negligent Homicide Investigation
Hawaiʻi Island police are renewing their request for information about a two-vehicle traffic accident that occurred on Sept. 3, 2016, on the Hawai‘i Belt Road (Route 11) just south of the Kamehameha III Highway intersection.
During the investigation, police learned that a green Subaru or Isuzu SUV may have caused the victim, Breanna Fujimoto, to cross the centerline of the roadway just prior to the head-on collision with a 2015 Nissan SUV.
Due to this new information, police have reclassified this traffic fatality from a coroner’s inquest investigation to a negligent homicide investigation.
Police ask anyone who may have witnessed either the collision or the green SUV leaving the scene of the collision to call Officer Justin Hooser at 326-4646, ext. 229. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300.
