By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

A 55-year old Hilo man has died from injuries he received when his motorcycle and a motor vehicle crashed at the intersection of Kinoole and Mohouli Streets in Hilo July 13th. Police say Earl M. Arakaki was headed north on Kinoole Street when a southbound
vehicle driven by a 67-year old Kailua-Kona woman failed to yield the right of way and made a turn in front of Arakaki, who was not wearing a helmet at the time. The victim was taken to Hilo Medical Center, where he died shortly after 4:00 p.m. on
Sunday, August 26. Its unknown whether speed, alcohol or drugs were involved, but police have reclassified the investigation to a negligent homicide and have ordered an autopsy to determine the
exact cause of death. The driver of the other vehicle escaped injury. Police ask that anyone with information about this crash call Officer Tuckloy Aurello at 961-8119.
