Media Release (update: ID of second man killed)

Big Island police have identified the second man who died Sunday (October 21) from injuries he received after being involved in a two-vehicle crash on Hawaiʻi Belt Road (Route 19) in the area of the 8-mile marker north of Hilo as 65-year-old Frank Rosol of a Hakalau address.

Responding to a 7:19 p.m. call, traffic investigators determined that Rosol was operating a 1999 Chevrolet pick-up truck and traveling north on Route 19 on the Hanawi Bridge when he apparently crossed the centerline and collided with a 2005 Cadillac Escalade multi-purpose vehicle traveling south and being operated by 61-year-old  Miles T. Nakanishi of Hilo.

Both drivers were dead at the scene.
