MEDIA RELEASE

A Kaʻū man died Wednesday morning (December 5) in a one-vehicle crash in South Kona. He was identified as 38-year-old Marcus Aickin of Ocean View.

Officers determined that Aickin had been driving a 2008 Ford F-450 pickup truck north on Highway 11 shortly before 8:46 a.m. when it ran off the right side of the road .2 miles south of the 97-mile marker and struck a tree.

Aickin, who had been wearing a seat belt, was taken to Kona Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:53 a.m.

Police have initiated a coroner’s inquest case and have requested an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. Because the crash may have been caused by a medical condition, police are waiting until after the autopsy, scheduled for Thursday (December 6), before adding this death to the official traffic fatality count.

An autopsy has determined that 38-year-old Marcus Aickin of Ocean View died died Wednesday morning (December 5) from a medical condition and not from the one-vehicle crash in South Kona.
