KEKAHA, Kauai (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Kauai police have identified a Kekaha man who died from his injuries following a car accident as 76-year-old Wilfred Ibara.

Ibara was walking in the eastbound lane of the Kaumualii Highway near Manu Road on Saturday night when a driver in the lane saw him and came to a sudden stop. The car behind the one closest to the man was unable to stop in time and crashed into the first car.

The impact pushed the first car forward, causing it to hit Ibarra. 

Ibara was found conscious at the scene with injuries to his head and hip. He was transported to Wilcox Hospital where he later died from his injuries on Sunday morning.

The investigation is still ongoing, but speed, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the accident, according to police.
