Man dies after driving into tree

A man killed when his pickup truck slammed into a tree Wednesday night in Waikane was identified yesterday by the Medical Examiner's Office as Andrew Guillermo, 33, of Kaneohe.

The crash happened at 10:39 p.m., and police shut down Kamehameha Highway in both directions until just before 1 a.m.

Police said Guillermo's green 1998 Toyota pickup was Kaneohe-bound when he lost control of the vehicle. The truck hit a large tree on the makai side of the highway. Police said no other vehicles were involved, and the driver was alone in the truck.

Guillermo, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to the Castle Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.


Bicycle rider dies after collision

A bicyclist hit by a vehicle Wednesday night in Kalihi died at the Queen's Medical Center, police said.

The man, 49, had no local address.

The collision happened at 7:42 p.m. near Dillingham Boulevard about 210 feet east of Middle Street.

Police said a gold 2004 multipurpose vehicle driven by a 62-year-old Kalihi woman was headed east from the Airport Viaduct's Dillingham Boulevard offramp when the vehicle struck the victim on a silver 2008 Giant 21-speed bicycle. Police have not determined the direction in which the bicycle was traveling.

The woman and her passenger, a 62-year-old Kalihi man, were not injured.

The bicycle rider was not wearing a helmet, police said.

For a little more than two hours, police closed the Dillingham Boulevard offramp and blocked traffic on Middle Street's southbound lanes, preventing traffic from going eastbound on Dillingham.
