Police: Medical condition caused deadly Big Island crash

HILO, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police have identified three of the victims of a two-vehicle crash on Wednesday that killed five people on Highway 11 near Pahala.

The driver of the sedan was identified as 73-year-old Donald Ingoglia of Sacramento, California.

An autopsy conducted Thursday (January 24) indicated that he suffered a medical condition, which apparently caused him to lose control of the car and cross the centerline.

The car crashed head-on into a 2002 Ford pickup truck, which overturned and caught fire.

Also riding in the sedan were the driver's son, 39-year-old Philip A. Ingoglia of Costa Rica, and the passenger's son, 9-year-old Isidora I Ingoglia of Costa Rica.

The boy was taken to Kau Hospital and then flown to Kona Community Hospital, where he later died.

Family members identified the man and woman in the pickup truck as 65-year-old Richard Taylor and 56-year-old Trini Ballesteros, both of Naalehu.
