The driver of the sedan was identified as 73-year-old Donald Ingoglia of Sacramento, California. An autopsy conducted Thursday (January 24) indicated that he suffered a medical condition, which apparently caused him to lose control of the car and cross the centerline.

The car crashed head-on into a 2002 Ford pickup truck, which overturned and caught fire.

Also riding in the sedan were the driver’s son, 39-year-old Philip A. Ingoglia of Costa Rica, and the passenger’s son, 9-year-old Isidora I. Ingoglia of Costa Rica.

A man and woman in the truck died at the scene, as did a Donald and Philip Ingoglia. The boy was taken to Kaʻū Hospital and then flown to Kona Community Hospital, where he later died.

Police still have not made positive identification of the occupants of the truck.

UPDATE: The West Hawaii Today reported the identification of the other two as:

“…Richard Taylor and his girlfriend Trini Ballesteros, of Naalehu…”
