LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police have identified the motorcyclist who died in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday as 21-year-old Byron Hahn-Morin of Waimea.

According to a preliminary police investigation, Hahn-Morin was traveling west on Koloa Road, just west of the Omao Road junction, when he apparently veered off the roadway at a sharp curve in the road.

Police were called to the scene at 3:28 p.m. and confirmed that Hahn-Morin died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash.

The incident remains under police investigation.

Koloa Road was closed in both directions for roughly two hours and traffic was directed onto Omao and Maluhia roads before reopening shortly before 6 p.m.

This is Kaua'i's fourth traffic fatality of 2013.
