A Maui bicyclist suffered fatal injuries when he was struck by a pickup truck along the Piʻilani Highway in South Maui Saturday, April 12, 2014.

Maui police have since identified the bicyclist as 61-year-old Karl Hagen of Kīhei.

The incident was reported at around 1:12 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, 2014, around mile marker 8 of the Piʻilani Highway, about 0.7 miles north of Kanani Road.

According to police reports, Hagen was traveling north in the bike lane of the highway when he was struck by a black 1992 Ford Ranger pickup truck that was being operated by a 28-year-old Kula man.

Police say a preliminary report reveals the pickup truck, which was also traveling in the north-bound direction, drifted into the bicycle lane and struck the bicyclist.

As a result of the collision, police say Hagen was transported to the emergency room at the Maui Memorial Medical Center where he later died as a result of the crash.

Police say the bicyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The incident was the seventh traffic fatality on Maui County roads this year compared to four at the same time last year.

Police say the involvement of speed, drugs, and alcohol has not been determined as the investigation is still pending.
