Police: racing may have led to deadly Big Island crash

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Big Island police have identified two people killed in a crash Saturday night in Kailua-Kona. 20-year-old Kyle Buckley of Kealakekua died when the 1997 Honda he was driving went out of control and crashed into a Toyota SUV headed in the opposite direction on Palani Road. His passenger, 16-year-old Jordan Rivera of Kailua-Kona was also killed.

After the initial collision, the Honda crashed into a Chrysler sedan that was also traveling in the opposite direction. The occupants of the Toyota, two men and two children aged one and three were treated and released from Kona Community Hospital. Two women, the driver and the passenger in the Chrysler, were also treated and released.

Police suspect that Buckley may have been racing another vehicle. Speed is considered a factor in the crash, it is unknown whether alcohol or drugs played a part. Police ask that anyone with information about this crash or anyone who may know the identity of the driver or vehicle that was possibly racing with the Honda call Officer Joshua Lewis at 326-4646, extension 229.
