Driver in 2013 Waianae crash sentenced for negligent homicide

Kamealohanakekaiaulu Wilbur-Delima

The driver in a deadly crash in Waianae that killed a teenager has been sentenced to one year in jail and five years probation.

The ruling came despite a request from prosecutors for the maximum 10-year prison sentence.

Kamealohanakekaiaulu Wilbur-Delima pleaded guilty to negligent homicide last November.

In 2013, Wilbur-Delima was driving a truck with 15 other people when he lost control near Makua Cave.

The vehicle hit some rocks and burst into flames, killing 16-year-old Zain Lalawai.

He was originally scheduled to be sentenced in March, but never showed up.
