Canadian visitor killed bicycling down Haleakala

MAKAWAO, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) - A visitor from Canada died Sunday while bicycling down Haleakala. The rented bicycle he was riding crashed into an SUV in Makawao, police said.

According to investigators, the crash happened at 9:24 a.m. Sunday on Makawao Avenue, about a quarter mile north of Kee Road. A light blue bicycle was northbound on Makawao Avenue when it failed to make a right-hand turn in the roadway, crossed over solid double yellow lines and collided head on with a 2004 Honda Element traveling in the southbound direction, Maui police said.

Police identified the bicyclist as 65-year-old Allyn Robert Parker of British Columbia. He was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Investigators said Parker was visiting Maui with his family.

The driver of the Honda, a 69-year-old Maui resident, was not hurt.

Police said Parker was wearing a bicycle helmet, and the driver of the Honda was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

Parker's bicycle was rented from Haleakala Bike Company, which declined comment. In 2007, Haleakala National Park banned commercial bike tours from the summit.

Parker's death is the 19th traffic fatality on Maui this year, compared to eleven at the same time last year.
