A 19-year-old Maui man died after the moped he was riding struck a car.

Chance Uyeda of Lahaina was driving south on Lower Honoapiilani Road near the Kahana Reef condominium at 8:17 p.m. Thursday, when the moped crossed the center line and struck a car traveling in the opposite direction, police said.
