A 72-year-old Kihei man died on Tuesday after succumbing to injuries sustained in an April vehicle collision.
Maui Police Department officials say the man died on Oahu.
At about 8:08 p.m. on April 17, a collision occurred on Maui Veterans Highway, south of Kealia NWR entrance.
Preliminary investigation reveals a 2011 Kia Optima was traveling south on Maui Veterans Highway headed towards Kihei when the operator, a nineteen 19-year-old female from Wailuku, did not observe a pedestrian, dressed in dark clothing walking across the roadway.
The woman struck the pedestrian with her vehicle.
The pedestrian, a 72-year-old man from Kihei, was illegally crossing Maui Veterans Highway walking westbound within the southbound lane of travel.
The operator of the Kia, and the lone passenger, a 22-year old male from Kahului were not injured as a result of this crash.
To date, Maui County has had four traffic fatalities in comparison to nine during the same time period last year.
