Honoka'a man killed in home accident

By 67AM KPUA News

Police have classified last weeks death of a Honokaa man, killed when a jacked-up van collapsed on him as a home accident.

Firefighters responding to a 4:10 p.m. alarm on Wednesday, found 58-year old James Thomas Jones unresponsive, under the van at a home on Ohia Street.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Hilo Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 9:00 p.m. An autopsy on Friday determined that Jones died from asphyxiation due to traumatic chest compression.
