A 34-year-old man was killed after being hit by a pickup truck while riding an electric dirt bike at Kapiolani Boulevard and Waiaka Road in McCully, authorities said.

According to a Honolulu Police Department Traffic Division report, a 17-year-old motorist and his three juvenile passengers were traveling west on Kapiolani Boulevard late Saturday night when their vehicle collided with a man on a Surron electric dirt bike.

The victim apparently was turning left from Waiaka Road, against a red-light signal, when he was struck, police said. He was not wearing a helmet, was ejected onto the road, police said.

HPD officials said they were informed Sunday at 1:55 a.m. that the victim died from his injuries.

Speed, drugs, and alcohol do not appear to be contributing factors, HPD said.

According to the Hawai’i Bicycling League, Surron’s vehicles are for off-road use only, and cannot be registered in Hawaii as a bicycle, moped, motorcycle or vehicle.

This was Oahu’s third traffic fatality in 2024, compared with five at the same time in 2023.
