Man who died in Aloha Stadium accident identified

Honolulu police report that a man died Sunday morning in the Aloha Stadium parking lot.

He was later identified as Lauie Auapa’au, 32, of Honolulu.

The call came in 4:15 a.m. A 39-year-old male driver of a roll-up cargo van was traveling northbound in the parking lot. His 32-year-old male passenger, sitting in the rear of the van with the door open, fell into the roadway.

He was taken to an area hospital in critical condition, where he was pronounced dead.

Speed and/or alcohol doesn’t appear to be contributing factors to the accident. An autopsy will be performed Tuesday.

Auapa’au’s death marks the ninth traffic fatality this year, compared to six during the same time in 2014.
