The Honolulu medical examiner has identified a bicyclist who died following a traffic crash in Kalihi on Wednesday night as 49-year-old Rickey Albano.
Albano, who was homeless, died at 12:48 a.m. Thursday at the Queen's Medical Center.
Police said Albano was riding his bicycle at 7:42 p.m. near Dillingham Boulevard about 210 feet east of Middle Street when he was hit by a 2004 multipurpose vehicle driven by a 62-year-old Kalihi woman.
The woman was headed east from the Airport Viaduct's Dillingham Boulevard offramp when the vehicle struck Albano, who was riding a silver 2008 Giant 21-speed bicycle.
The Medical Examiner's Office said Albano died of "multiple internal injuries due to motor vehicle collision."
The driver and her passenger, a 62-year-old Kalihi man, were not injured.
Albano was not wearing a helmet, police said.
