Hawaii County police have identified a man who died Wednesday after an incident at a construction site as Donny Loando of Holualoa.

Police said Loando, 38, was operating a single-drum roller to build a private driveway when the vehicle rolled backward down a steep slope and crashed into the carport of a neighboring residence.

Loando was thrown from the roller and sustained critical injuries about 1 p.m. Wednesday. He was taken to Kona Community Hospital, where he died at 4:15 p.m.

An autopsy has been scheduled. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call officer Christopher Kapua-Allison at 326-4646 extension 229.
