Man who died just minutes after car accident identified

Local News

A man involved in a crash died after being hit by another car on Oahu’s North Shore early Saturday, June 1. 

The medical examiner has identified him as Neil Tamayo of Waialua. 

Police say Tamayo, 41, was driving from Haleiwa on Kamehameha Highway around 2 a.m.

They said he lost control and hit a guardrail, then his car came to a stop in the middle of the highway — blocking both directions. 

Police said Tamayo got out of his car, and that’s when another car ran into his car, and he was hit. 

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead. 

Police say speed, drugs, and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
