A motorcyclist involved in a crash last month near Kalaheo High School died of his injuries yesterday, police said.
He was identified by the city Medical Examiner’s Office as Benjamin Yee, 75, of Kailua.
Police said at about 4:40 p.m. on Jan. 26, a Yamaha motorcycle rear-ended a blue Toyota Matrix driven by a man, 34, which was stopped at Mokapu Boulevard and Kapaa Quarry Road.
The driver was originally taken to the hospital in serious condition and traffic investigators were not called to the scene, police said. The other motorist was not injured.
Speed or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
Yee’s death is the ninth on Oahu this year, compared to eight at this time in 2010.
