HONOLULU (AP) - The driver of a pickup has died after striking a parked car, a cement barrier and a coconut tree at a Maui park.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports 46-year-old Harlan Masuda of Wailuku died after the crash at Baldwin Beach Park in Paia.

A cause of death has not been determined and an autopsy was planned.

A witness tells Maui police that the pickup at 4:20 p.m. Tuesday struck the parked car and then the cement barrier, which broke.

The truck appeared to accelerate and drove onto a soccer field before hitting the coconut tree inside the park.

The driver died at the scene.
