Hawaii County police are again asking for witnesses to a two-vehicle crash in front of Hirano Store on Oct. 11 that killed a Glenwood man.
Traffic investigators determined that a 2001 Ford four-door station wagon was traveling on Highway 11 and made a turn into the Hirano Store lot.
A 33-year-old woman from Glenwood in a Dodge van crossed the centerline to avoid a collision but struck the Ford.
The driver of the Ford station wagon, John K. Isabel Jr. of Glenwood, was dead at the scene. Fire Department rescue personnel took the woman to Hilo Medical Center.
Police ask that anyone who observed either vehicle before or during the crash to call officer Tuckloy Aurello at 961-8119.
