BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Papaikou man who was ejected from his truck in a crash just before 8:30 p.m. Sunday has died.
Police say 24-year-old Tylor Souza died from injuries he sustained on the Hawaii Belt Road south of Honomu Transfer Station.
According to officials, Souza was driving a 1985 Toyota pickup truck and traveling south on Hawaii Belt Road when he lost control, crossed the centerline, struck guardrails and overturned.
Souza was not wearing a seatbelt.
Fire crews transported Souza to the Hilo Medical Center in serious condition, where he later died Monday at 3:00 a.m.
Police believe speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
An autopsy has been ordered to determine the exact cause of death.
This is the 24th traffic fatality on the Big Island this year, compared to 20 at this time last year.
