Autopsy Reveals Cause of Death in Single-Vehicle Crash

A Pahoa woman found unresponsive following a single-vehicle crash along Government Beach road about 2.8 miles South of Kahakai Boulevard, died from natural causes.

Hawai`i Police Department officials say an autopsy conducted on the body of 66-year-old Jenny Diaz revealed that the cause of her death was not related to injuries sustained in the crash. Since her death was not in relation to the injuries sustained in the crash it will not be counted as a traffic-related casualty.

The traffic fatality total for 2019 has been revised to 14 traffic fatalities this year compared to 21 at this same time last year.
