A 19-year-old Waikoloa man has died from injuries he sustained in a two-vehicle crash on Queen Ka`ahumanu Highway 200 feet south of Kaiminani Drive on July 30.
Police say Wyland K.B. Damaso was heading north in his 2012 Ford four-door sedan when he crossed the centerline and collided with a 2001 Isuzu van operated by a 54-year old Kailua-Kona man. Damaso was eventually flown to Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu where he died at 4:43 p.m. on Tuesday, and became the island’s 24th traffic fatality of the year, compared to 15 at this time last year.
The Kailua-Kona man was treated and released from Kona Community Hospital.
