WAIANAE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man killed in a motorcycle crash on Oahu's west side has been identified.

Honolulu's Medical Examiner said 33-year-old Michael Aken of Waianae died from blunt force trauma after the accident.

Aken was driving his motorcycle Sunday night when he collided with a Ford pickup truck. The truck was making a left turn from Kapiki Road on to Hakimo Road.

The accident happened around 7 p.m.

Aken was taken to the Queen's Medical Center West Oahu in critical condition, where he later died.

The 70-year-old man in the pickup truck was treated at the scene, but refused to be taken to the hospital.

Hakimo Road was shut down for several hours for the police investigation.

Police said speed may be a factor, but it's not known if drugs or alcohol are involved.

This was the 32nd traffic-related death on Oahu this year compared to 41 deaths from the same time last year.
