Kalihi teen killed near Sandy Beach may have fallen from car

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:44 p.m. HST, Apr 12, 2013

Police are asking for any witnesses who may have seen what happened to a 17-year-old Kalihi boy fatally injured in front of Sandy Beach early this morning to come forward.

It was believed he may have been the victim of a hit-and-run driver, but Honolulu CrimeStoppers Coordinator Sgt. Kim Buffett said an autopsy showed his injuries were not consistent with an auto accident.

Police said he may have fallen out of a car.

There were no other cars in the area when a patrol officer found Boydshiro A. Maycry lying on Kalanianaole Highway at 2:39 a.m. with traumatic head injuries. He died at the scene., police said.

This is Oahu’s 21st traffic death so far in 2013, compared with 21 for the same period a year ago.

Police closed Kalanianaole Highway as they investigated the accident. The highway reopened before 5:30 a.m.

While the youth's death is a tragic loss for his loved ones, one must wonder why a 17 year old is out at 3-something in the morning. I hope HPD catches the hit-and-run driver.

totally agree w/whs. According to tv coverage @ 5am, he was with a group when he decided to wander onto the road. Hope all-lie doesn't blame the driver for the hit, or advise everyone to slow down. It's a highway and no one knows yet if speed was involved.. However, I blame the driver for leaving the scene

I feel bad for the youth that was killed. To add to Retired, did you see the small pile of bottles and cans of beer his friends and relatives left strewn over the park? I want to find out who sold the beer to them, if the kid was drinking, and if so who was the one who gave beer to the kid?

al_kiqaeda, tv coverage showed the victim's pals hugging and comforting each other at the accident scene. One wonders if they blame each other, the victim or the hit-and-run driver?

According to the news report, there were beer bottles scattered on the ground were the group was and they had alcohol on there breaths. The youth may have been drinking and crossed the street only to be hit by an intoxicated driver.

maybe not an intoxicated driver if you ask me. I'd go on the lines of an ex-felon, a criminal type for sure. Most law abiding citizens will stop to render aid. Most with a criminal record will take off, you know the rules, if nobody see just keep on trucking.

The group is lying. The injury is not consistent with a hit and run. There were massive head injuries and not bodily injuries which lead one to believe he fell out of a vehicle. I have a feeling they're protecting the perp that drove the vehicle that he fell out of. They don't want to take responsibilty of given him the alcohol and deniability is a convenient excuse!

What does that have to do with this tragedy? At 17 he is still a minor and a lot of issues are involved because of this. Also, a lot of students in high school are, in fact, 18 years of age. How can you surmise that he was not happy at home simply from the information given, even from the television news? And you are a teacher?

Why must you state the obvious? We all know that is the question. But right now, it's all about the family mourning the loss of their 17 year old child. Let's allow them to do that first, make compassionate comments, and then maybe later we can all discuss why kids (or anyone?) shouldn't be out at those hours.

One has to consider the fact that the boy possibly ran across the street. However a hit and run is no excuse. JUST STOP FOR GOD SAKE !!!! Humans have evolved into the most intelligent beings this planet knows. We know for example that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, which unfortunately is the bet that Mufi Hannemann placed on the table, to make himself King Hannemann and which desire did not come through. The midget beat the Hulk in a rematch governor's race and we all now know how vile a politician Mufi was. Even a first time candidate Tulsi beat him. What can Mufi run for now? Governor of Kalihi? AND FOR GOD SAKE PLEASE DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE FOR APPROVAL !!!!!

I agree that driving away is a terrible thing to do and I always get mad when I hear that. But in this case they said there was a crowd of angry, and apparently drunk friends (family members?) there... dunno if the driver could've ever told his side of the story if (s)he had stuck around. But at least they should have called in or went in as soon as they thought they were safely away from the situation.

You make a good point, but if the driver had been drinking and driving cautiously and due to no fault of his, the boy ran onto the highway---and it's pitch dark at that time--I am not sure, if it were me, what I would have done. There must be damage and probably DNA on the car. He/she'll be caught!!

Oh I think they should be caught. But under the circumstances, you have no idea who these folks are coming out of the dark or how many of them there are. Maybe the guy you hit was running from them too. But that doesn't excuse calling it in as soon as you felt you were in a safe place.

.. if the elevated rail would run by Sandy's he would not have been hit. Because the driver of the car would not have been driving but riding the rail. May his family find peace and the tv news is reporting his older brother was with him I hope that he can find peace too.

He was out at 3:00 a.m., where was his parents? At 17, you are still under age, and at Sandy Beach? One of the most dangerous places to be at 3:00 a.m. in the morning. I am sorry for his death and feel for his parents, but only time will tell what really happened. Pray the one responsible comes forward.

Where is the information on the type of car police are looking for? That this information is not included in this report either indicates the S-A failed to include this critical piece of info or the police already know and have a lead on the suspect.

"Police aren’t sure if the victim was hit or fell out of a car." If the police don't know what happened, clearly, they don't have witnesses to the event, which means...they don't have a description of the vehicle. It doesn't automatically mean there's a failure of reporting by the Star-Advertiser. However, there is evidence of failure in your logic.

Another report said nobody reported the accident. A beat officer saw the body on the ground. When he stopped and activated his blue lights, then, his family and friends went to see what was going on. They identified the victim. Apparently, the boy went off by himself.

This is such a careless senseless act and I can not help but feel remorse for the family of this child. One question comes to mind. Where was HPD? To my understanding parks are closed at a certain hour and no alcohol is allowed during all hours, HPD knows this goes on especially at Sandys, all they would have to do is make their routine checks during the course of the evening and early morning hours and maybe this tragedy could have been prevented.

According to the article, the officer was on patrol when he found the boy. I'd like to think he was making that 'routine check' when he found the body. Who knows how long the people were there? Could have just gotten there right after an officer left the area, no? There is no police station @ Sandy's, so no cop sits there waiting on kids to come party. Geez HH.

Exactly, HPD sub station is a few miles away so Skyler what your saying is that HPD sits in their station waiting to be called out when really they should be out patrolling. I think you misunderstood what I was saying. No one is blaming HPD but maybe these troubled areas should be patrolled with a little more frequency.

Alcohol is prohibited at all parks and supposed to be closed at certain hours. Persons who brought the alcohol is aiding the delinquency of a minor and that person is partially to blame. HPD can't be there all the time so they can't be blame for the incident but people conveniently accused them of not doing their job. As the story states he was either hit or fell out of a truck which is still under investigation. He could've been already drunk and did fall from a pickup truck that was joining the party of just leaving the party. Traumatic head injuries probably means he fell out of a truck as opposed to bodily injuries.

here's my theory on what happened: the 17 yr old told the party he was catching a ride to leave in a truck . as he was riding in the back of the truck, he changed his mind and tells the driver he is jumping out to go back to the party. he jumped or fell out of the truck bed, hit his head on the ground and knocks out and the driver kept on going thinking all is good. that is also why the party didn't miss him, they thought he just caught a ride to go home. very sad however it went down.

The thing about it was where was this boy riding in, in the vehicle? Was it a truck? This boy is too young to drive, more so at night, so the person that was driving the vehicle would know what happened. At some point, there must have been a question as to what happened to their passenger, the boy. Did he jump out of the vehicle or was he pushed out? At that time of the morning, there would be almost no traffic on that highway. This is not a guess, i been there, as far as time and place. Anyway, the person driving the vehicle would know. Why is that person in hiding?
