    A bicyclist was struck at the intersection of Waianae Valley Road and Niihau Street.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified today a 59-year-old man who died after being struck by a van while riding his bicycle as Stanley Simon of Waianae.

The cause of his death was pending.

Simon died Monday night after he was struck at the intersection of Waianae Valley Road and Niihau Street at about 10:50 p.m.

Police said Simon ran a stop sign on Niihau Street and entered Waianae Valley Road directly into the path of a Honda van driven by a 53-year-old Waianae man.

Simon was struck and thrown from his bike. He died at the scene.

It was this year’s first traffic-related fatality on Oahu, compared to two at the same time last year.
