The Honolulu Medical Examiner's office has confirmed the name of the woman who died after she was struck by a delivery truck at the Kapiolani Community College Farmera' Market on Saturday.

She was identified as 27-year-old Anne Runland of Honolulu.

The market was not open at the time Runland was struck, but the parking lot was full of vendors.

Another man was also hit by the truck.  His wife says he was setting up when the delivery truck struck their booth, knocking down their tent and hitting employees.

"Something happened to the truck.  It just started really going full throttle and, unfortunately, when they were straightening their truck, just went right through our front  tent and it took one of our workers under," said Sylvia Thompson.  "They were felling her pulse , but it was going in and out."

Thompson's husband was taken to the hospital with a broken pelvic bone.

Police did not arrest the 23-year-old woman driving the truck saying she was not a veteran driver.  The investigation is focusing on the truck after witnesses say it jerked back and forth before impact.

"We are not looking at speed or alcohol, so we will have to do a mechanical inspection of the vehicle," said Lt. Bobby Towne of the Honolulu Police Department.

The University of Hawaii says the smaller KCC Farmers' at 4 p.m. on Tuesday has been cancelled.  Campus officials and the Farm Bureau are discussing plans for the Saturday Farmers' Market.
