HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We now know the identity of the man killed on Waianae Valley Road Saturday afternoon.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner's office says 23-year-old Anthony Gomes of Waianae was speeding when he lost control of his truck.

Sunday, a mangled up vehicle shows the severe impact of the crash.

A neighbor we spoke with says he ran out when he heard the commotion.

"I was trying to talk to him to hang in there, the ambulance is on its way, and that was it," said witness Roger Iguchi-Bryant. "It's really important to let the community know to slow down and not to go fast and stuff like that."

Investigators say Gomes was speeding when he crashed.
