Police Seek Help Locating Family Following Traffic Death
By Wendy Osher
Maui police are asking for the public’s help in locating family members of a woman killed in a collision in West Maui last month.
Police have since identified the woman as Roselie Miller, 51, of Lahaina.
“Investigators have been making numerous attempts to contact Ms. Miller’s family; however all indicators are that Ms. Miller may not have any immediate family in the United States,” police said in an updated report.
Anyone with family member information is asked to call Officer Jonathan Kaneshiro with the department’s Vehicle Homicide Unit at (808) 244-6364.
Miller suffered fatal injuries when she was struck by a pickup truck while walking within the bicycle lane of the Honoapiʻilani Highway at around 11:54 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 23, 2013, according to police reports.
The incident occurred just south of the Hīnau Street intersection in Lahaina.
Police say a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup, driven by a 32-year-old Wailuku man, drifted into the bicycle lane while traveling south on Honoapiʻilani Highway, and struck Miller.
Miller sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene, according to police reports.
The incident was the 16th traffic fatality on Maui County roads in 2013, compared to 23 at the same time the year before.
