Police to investigate death of skateboarder
HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police are investigating the death of an 18-year-old skateboarder in Kaneohe as a possible negligent homicide case.
A crash Tuesday killed Alan Danielson, who graduated this year from Castle High School. His family says he had planned to attend classes at Windward Community College and the University of Hawaii at Manoa this year.
Danielson fell from his skateboard as he was pulled down a street by a car. Police say he was hanging onto the passenger side but fell and hit his head on pavement.
He was not wearing a helmet.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the driver of the car was a 19-year-old neighbor and friend of Danielson.
