Medical Examiner hopes to ID man who fell on H-2 freeway

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:11 p.m. HST, Feb 21, 2014

The Medical Examiner's office is trying to determine the identity of a 75-year-old man who died when he fell from the Meheula Parkway overpass near Mililani Thursday night onto the H-2 freeway.

The death is classified as an unattended death until the results of an autopsy are completed.

Police closed northbound lanes of the H-2 freeway at the overpass around 6 p.m. Thursday. One lane was reopened an hour later and all lanes were reopened by 8:30 p.m.

Traffic was diverted to the Mililani Mauka and Mililani Town offramps.

Word is one of the people selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the intersection near Schofield Barracks was on the way to work and spilled his doughnut boxes on the H2. HPD put out an instant "Doughnut Alert" and shut down the freeway to recover as many innocent doughnuts as possible. Can't let them go to waste.

Show some class localguy. Someone just lost their life. What if the person was one of your relatives? Those remarks were uncalled for. Honolulu;s Finest put their lives on the line everyday out there to keep us safe.

Was the life "lost" or did the scrub "give it up".

I heard from TV that a guy 'accidently' fell onto the freeway. How in the world can someone accidentally fall from an overhead? Either he was pushed or suicide.

Elderly, it's possible, the guardrail there isn't very high from what I remember.

Actually they recently increased the height of the guardrail--it was pretty low before.

No media reports of what happened. Nothing even on morning news.

if they don't know his identity, how do they know he's 75 years old?

Yeah! SA has done that a few times and I also wondered how they got his age without knowing who he is.

News outlets normally don't report on suicides. In situations like this, the media says the deceased "fell" rather than "jumped". I've always been fascinated by jumpers. Must be one helluva adrenaline rush. Granted their final one, but the rush must be awesome.

2NDC, a jump from 60 feet results in a hard landing in less than two seconds. Awesome rush, I think not enough time to enjoy the fall.
