A 28-year-old Kailua man has died after he fell out of a truck bed in Waimanalo, police said.
Police said a red 1993 Ford flatbed truck operated by a 27-year-old man, also of Kailua, was traveling southbound on Mahailua Street near the intersection of Kakaina Street at about 10:55 p.m Saturday when his passenger in the bed of the truck, for unknown reasons, fell out of the truck bed.
He was taken in critical condition to a hospital. Police said the passenger’s condition worsened and he later died Sunday.
Neither speed, drugs or alcohol were factors.
This is the fifth traffic-related fatality on Oahu this year compared to six at the same time last year.
