A 25-year old man driving a motorcycle died on Wednesday night following a traffic collision near the Kaumuali‘i Highway/Puolo Road junction in Hanapepe.

The victim was identified by Kauai police as Brian Cesario of Kalâheo.

According to a preliminary report, Cesario was traveling east on Kaumuali‘i Highway at around 6:30 p.m. when he collided with a westbound Ford F-150 making a left turn from the highway onto Puolo Road.

The crash remains under investigation.

This is the eighth traffic fatality on Kaua'i this year.
