Hilo man killed in weekend traffic mishap

By 67AM KPUA News

The Big Islands traffic death toll for 2014 now stands at four following Sunday mornings death of a 26-year old Hilo man in Kea`au. Police, responding to a 4:31 a.m. call, say Matthew Therriens westbound vehicle overtook another vehicle on the Kea`au-Pahoa Road (Route 130) and collided with an eastbound pickup truck between the three and four mile markers.

Therrien was an English major at UH Hilo, who was set to graduate in May. The driver of the pickup truck, identified as a 52-year old Kea`au man, was treated for minor injuries at Hilo Medical Center and later arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant.

Traffic Enforcement officers have initiated a negligent homicide investigation and ordered an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. There were 11 traffic fatalities at this time last year.
