A 71-year-old Japanese visitor died from his injuries after falling off an E Noa Tours trolley just outside Ala Moana Center Monday afternoon, police said.
The man was pronounced dead at 11:53 p.m. at the Queen's Medical Center, according to traffic investigators.
Police said the man was standing next to the right side exit at the middle of the vehicle as the trolley was leaving the shopping center at about 3:15 p.m.
When the 33-year-old trolly driver made a left turn onto Ala Moana Boulevard toward Waikiki, the man fell onto the roadway 520 feet west of Atkinson Drive, police said.
He suffered head injuries and was taken by ambulance to the hospital in critical condition, police said.
