A 43-year-old Hauula man died last night from injuries apparently sustained when he jumped or fell from a moving truck on Kamehameha Highway during an argument with the driver.

According to police, the man was riding in a Ford truck driven by a 46-year-old Hauula woman. The two argued and the man either jumped or fell from the truck around 9:25 p.m. on Kamehameha Highway 99 feet south of Kawaipuna Street.

He was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries and was conscious and combative, police said. He was later downgraded to critical condition and died.

Police said speed and alcohol were not factors for the driver. However, they said the victim had been drinking prior to the fall.
