A moped rider is dead after an accident with a motorcycle on Maui.
The incident happened just before 4 p.m. Monday.
The motorcyclist and the moped driver were both traveling westbound on Waiehu Beach Road near the intersection of Linekona Place in Wailuku.
After the collision with the moped, the motorcycle continued west and sideswiped the left side of a car that was parked facing west along the westbound shoulder of Waiehu Beach Road.
As a result of this collision, the 25-year-old motorcycle operator, of Wailuku, suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Maui Memorial Medical Center.
The operator of the moped was identified as 47-year-old Earle Maielua of Wailuku. He died at the scene.
Officials say both the operator of the motorcycle and the operator of the moped were not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Police say speed may be a factor. They are still investigating if alcohol or drugs were factors.
This is the 12th fatality compared to 20 this time last year on Maui.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
You may remember the story we did earlier this week about the Pearl Harbor survivor who was headed here from the mainland for the ceremony, he was bumped from the flight and didn't know if he would get here in time.
It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
