Details emerge of fatal accident in which assailant dropped a Fremont woman on the side of I-880 and hit her with a car

The identity of a young woman who was hit by a car in January after she was allegedly pushed into the central median of I-880 by an armed assailant has come to light.

The 20-year-old woman was Fremont resident Diamond Kiilani Kamehaiku-Sisko, according to Mercury News. Her online obituary says she worked at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Newark, actively volunteered at a local church, and described her as someone who saw the good in others.

The controversy that led to her tragic death was over a plastic yellow “Children at Play” sign, authorities said.

Around 10 p.m. Jan. 12, Kamehaiku-Sisko and an unidentified friend allegedly took a sign in the middle of a road in the Fremont area before exiting onto the I-880 freeway, Mercury News reported. . Near the Dixon Landing Road exit, another driver reportedly cut them off suddenly, drew a gun, and demanded that they get out of the car.

He then took the “Children’s Play” sign and the keys to the van and fled the scene. Kamehaiku-Sisko and her friend, stuck on the left side of the road next to the center divider and unable to move, were hit by an oncoming car while trying to get back to safety.

Kamehaiku-Sisko tragically died as a result of her injuries. Police have yet to make any arrests or charge in connection with the incident.
