Media Release (update)

An autopsy was conducted Monday (September 21) on the body of 49-year-old Robert J. Cooley of Hilo, who died Thursday (September 17) after being involved in a one-vehicle traffic collision in Waikoloa.

The medical examiner determined that Cooley died from a medical condition and not from the crash.

For that reason, the death does not count toward the official traffic fatality count.
