A fatal motor vehicle accident took place on Wednesday along South Papa Avenue in an area south of Kaahumanu Avenue in Kahului.
Maui Police Department officials say the collision occurred when a male pedestrian was walking across South Papa Avenue outside of a marked crosswalk when he was struck by a black 2018 Honda four-door sedan traveling southbound on South Papa Avenue.
The operator of the Honda, a 46 year old female from Kahului, was utilizing her seatbelt and not injured. The male was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
On Saturday, the male’s condition worsened and he died. The cause of death will be determined after an autopsy is performed. The male has not been identified.
The involvement of speed, drugs and alcohol are unknown at this time as the investigation is on-going.
This is Maui County’s 17th traffic fatality of 2018 as compared to the same number this time last year.
