A 30-year-old man died early Wednesday morning in a motorcycle crash on Kaneohe Bay Drive near the Bayview Golf Course.
On Thursday, the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified him as Kalani Bell, 30, of Kailua. Cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma.
At 12:45 a.m., Bell was traveling eastbound, lost control of his cycle, then went on to a grassy area and crashed into a wooden utility pole.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
This is the 57th traffic fatality on Oahu so far this year, compared to 48 at the same time last year.
