Media Release

A 63-year-old Waikoloa man died following a single-vehicle collision on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at the intersection of Daniel K. Inouye Highway and Highway 190.

Responding to a 10:25 a.m. call, police determined that an orange 2014 Honda CB1100 motorcycle heading west (makai) on Daniel K. Inouye Highway ran off the roadway after striking a stop sign. The motorcycle then struck a guardrail and the rider was ejected. The motorcyclist was transported to Kona Community Hospital where he was later pronounced dead at 2:50 p.m.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Police believe that speed was a possible factor in the incident.

The man has not been positively identified pending notification of next of kin. An autopsy has been ordered to determine the exact cause of death.
