Excessive speed is believed to have been a factor in a motorcycle collision in Wailuku that left a 36-year-old Lahaina man dead on Friday evening.
According to police, Aaron Burnett was riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle south on Kuihelani Highway when he apparently rear-ended an SUV and lost control of the motorcycle. Burnett fell to the roadway and was then struck by an oncoming Mazda sedan.
The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. near Waiko Road.
Burnett was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the SUV sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene. The driver of the Mazda was not hurt.
It is not yet known if alcohol or drugs may also have been factors in the incident.
