A 70-year-old Pukulani motorcyclist died Tuesday from injuries he received when he lost control of his vehicle last month in Paia.
Maui police said Allen Vierra was driving a black 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle April 27 at 10:42 a.m. when he lost control and the motorcycle went down on Baldwin Avenue near Puakou Place. He was not wearing a helmet.
Vierra was taken in critical condition to Maui Memorial Medical Center, where he was hospitalized until he died at 2:35 a.m. Tuesday.
It was the eighth traffic fatality in Maui County this year, compared to 13 at this time last year.
