The accident occurred just after 2 p.m. when the victim was trying to turn onto Kamehameha Highway from Kuilima Drive and collided with a 2007 white delivery truck.

Police said the victim was making a wide turn on her 2013 white moped when she hit the truck and was thrown to the pavement.

She was taken in critical condition to the Pali Momi Medical Center where she later died.
