Maui police say a 12-year-old boy is dead after a pickup truck overturned on Pauwela Lighthouse Road just north of Hana Highway in Pauwela.

It happened about 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 25.

Maui police say a 44-year-old Kula man was driving a Toyota pickup truck when he swerved to avoid a tire on the dirt roadway. Police say the truck overturned onto its passenger side.

The driver's son, Connor Ellis, sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene of the crash.  He was not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver was treated at Maui Memorial Medical Center and released.

Police say the involvement of speed, drugs, and alcohol has not been determined as the investigation is still pending.
