38-Year-Old Kaʻū Man Dies Today in South Kona Car Crash

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.

HPDBadgeOfficers determined that Aickin had been driving a 2008 Ford F-50 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.

The parcel will be auctioned by New York City-based Racebrook Marketing Concepts, and its auction affiliate Sheldon Good & Co.

Zoned for more than 100 five-acre lots, Keopuka is an opportunity for a developer, investor or private buyer seeking to acquire prime land at an incredible discount to market value, according to Racebrook Marketing.
