MOANALUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The City and County of Honolulu is honoring the legacy of Zachary Manago, a former Hawaii Pacific University baseball player who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in 2010.

Under Bill 77, the city would name the bicycle lanes along Ala Napunani Street after Manago, where the 18-year-old grew up.

“Our hope is that the lanes will raise awareness for safer streets,” said Daphne Manago, Zachary’s mom. “Thank you for keeping our son Zach's vision for more bike lanes and safer streets alive.”

Manago, a Moanalua High School graduate, was struck from behind while riding his bicycle with a large group of friends on Kamehameha Highway near Leilehua Golf Course. His loss was mourned by many who remember him as a great friend and teammate. 

“Nothing can replace the loss that Zachary’s family continues to feel after his tragic death, but it’s my hope that this recognition along Ala Napunani Street will honor his memory and bring some comfort to those who loved him so dearly,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell said in a statement.
