One person died after a vehicle crashed in Pahoa on Saturday, September 4.
The crash occurred in the area of Highway 130 and Karahine Street, also known as Kea Aupa Hoare Road. Hawaii police responded to the incident at around 9:21 pm. Upon arriving at the scene, police officers determined that the 2000 Toyota Tacoma, which was traveling north on freeway 130, lost control and slipped off the right shoulder of the roadway, causing the vehicle to roll.
The HPD said the roadway was wet at the time of the collision and it was raining in the area.
The only occupant of the truck, the male operator, was expelled and unresponsively placed under the vehicle. He was later transferred to the Hilo Medical Center and sentenced to death on Sunday, September 5, at 12:25 am.
According to police, the authorities investigating the case determined the speed, and the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time, was the cause of the collision. At this time, police have not determined whether alcohol or drugs are a factor in this investigation.
Your driver’s license will be held until you have a clear identification and notification of your close relatives. An autopsy was ordered to determine the exact cause of death.
This is the 16th fatal road accident in 2021 compared to the 13 fatal road accidents of the same period last year.
The East Hawaiʻi Traffic Enforcement Unit has launched an inquest for coroners’ causes of death, which is pending. Police are seeking someone who may have witnessed the accident, or who has the information to contact Police Officer Jared Cabatu at 808-961-2339 or send an email to the following address: [email protected]..
