(KHNL) -- It was another deadly day on Oahu's roadways. Two people were killed in two separate crashes Friday morning.

The first one happened at the intersection of California Avenue and Mango Street in Wahiawa. Police say a 95-year-old man was walking in a crosswalk on California Avenue at about 6:30 a.m., when a Ford Explorer hit him.

Paramedics took the pedestrian to Wahiawa General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The 25-year-old driver of the SUV was not hurt.

About five hours later, a crash on Kalanianaole Highway in Aina Haina left a bicyclist dead. Police say a bus slammed into the cyclist near West Hind Drive at about 11:45 a.m.

Witnesses told investigators the victim was first riding his bike on the sidewalk. He then went into the bike lane, and swerved in front of the bus.

Paramedics took the bicyclist to a hospital, where he later died.

With Friday's two fatalities, Oahu's traffic death toll for the year now stands at 16.
