The lone male operator of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. The operator has since been identified as 52 year old William C. White of Kahului. Preliminary investigation reveals that White was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision. The involvement of speed, drugs and alcohol are still pending as the investigation is ongoing.
