MAILI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A motorcyclist died from injuries two days after a crash on Oahu’s west side.

He has been identified as 49-year-old Waianae resident Michael Gonsalves.

The crash happened along Farrington Highway just west of Hookele Street in Maili around 6 p.m. last week Friday.

According to police, Gonsalves was heading west on Farrington Highway when he was struck by a van exiting from a driveway of a gas station.

Gonsalves was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said. Speed and alcohol were not deemed factors.

The 63-year-old driver of the van was not injured.

Gonsalves was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. Police said he later died on Nov. 25.

The medical examiner said he died from multiple blunt for injuries sustained in the accident.

This is the 59th traffic fatality of 2018 for Oahu, compared to 40 this time last year.
