Lahaina man killed in West Maui bicycle crash identified
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The bicyclist killed on the Valley Isle last week Tuesday has been identified.
Authorities named him as 62-year-old Bryan Harnden of Lahaina.
County police said a preliminary investigation found Harnden was attempting to cross east at the Lahaina Bypass and Honoapiilani Highway intersection. That’s when a 1999 black Toyota Tacoma heading south hit him.
The truck’s driver, a 28-year-old Lahaina woman, immediately stopped to render aid.
Thrown onto the road, Harnden died at the scene despite life-saving attempts. Police say he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Police added that speed does not appear to be a factor in this crash, and the use of alcohol and drugs is pending a toxicology report.
This incident marks Maui’s sixth traffic death of the year compared to 11 this time last year.
