KAPAHI, Kauai (HawaiiNewsNow) - The 34-year-old Kapaa man who died after a crash in Kapahi on Saturday morning has been identified.

Kauai authorities ID’d the man on Monday as Dean Ikaika Brown Aiwohi.

A preliminary investigation revealed that he was riding his motorcycle on Kawaihau Road near the Kainahola Road intersection when he apparently lost control, crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Nissan pickup truck.

Aiwohi was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the pickup, who is also a 34-year-old Kapaa man, was not hurt.

Police shutdown the highway for nearly 5 hours for the investigation.
