ATV accident victim on the Big Island was Kamuela man
The victim of an all-terrain vehicle accident on Hawaii island Sunday has been identified as a Kamuela man.
Willard Rapoza Jr., 48, died after crashing on his ATV sometime between 10 a.m. and noon Sunday. Rapoza left Waimea on an ATV, and at 1:25 p.m. Monday relatives found him unresponsive and trapped beneath the ATV on a trail on private property off Fire Road 15 in Waimea.
He was pronounced dead at Kona Community Hospital at 7:30 p.m. Monday. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
Because the crash involved an ATV on private property, it is not counted as a traffic fatality for official statistical purposes, Hawaii County police said.
