Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - A 26-year-old Hilo man has died in a crash on Keaau-Pahoa Road in Puna.

Big Island police say the man was westbound in a Subaru multipurpose vehicle Sunday when he tried to overtake another car and collided with a pickup truck heading in the opposite direction.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the driver of the truck has been identified as a 52-year-old Keaau man. He sustained minor injuries and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of an intoxicant.

The men were the only occupants in the vehicles.

The crash is under investigation.
