HONOLULU — Two 18-year-old women killed in a traffic accident along Windward O‘ahu were identified by family members yesterday as Leshay Gusman and Whitney Fergerstrom.

Gusman and Fergerstrom graduated from Kamehameha Schools last year.
Gusman was a boarder student from Kaua‘i, and Fergerstrom was a boarder student from the Big Island.
They both lived on O‘ahu and were currently enrolled in the University of Hawai‘i system, officials said.
