HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 62-year-old Waikiki man who was hit by a pickup truck Feb. 1 died more than a week later, authorities said.
David Niau had just left a Super Bowl party at his sister's house in Nuuanu and was riding his bike when he was struck near Judd Street, family members told Hawaii News Now.
"I personally didn't know that it was him until the very next day," said Celine Nelsen, Niau's niece. "My aunty got wind of it from an officer who stopped by."
Honolulu police said the incident happened at around 8:30 p.m. when another man was trying to turn left onto Judd Street.
Niau was born on Kauai and moved to Oahu after high school. He worked as a resident manager at the Waikiki Skyliner.
Niau had posted this letter online a few months ago:
"They say the older you get, the wiser you become, but I still make mistakes and learn from them every day. I do know that life is short and you have to live every day as if it was your last. I will always live as iI was meant to be not as people expected. Aloha, Uncle Dave. Mahalo."
