Two killed in Alii Drive motorcycle accident


Two Kailua-Kona men died Sunday (January 10) from injuries sustained in a motorcycle/pedestrian crash on Ali’i Drive fronting the Ali’i Lani condominiums in Kailua-Kona.

The motorcycle operator was identified as Dale R. Dyk, 50, of a Kailua-Kona address.

The pedestrian was identified as Jaison Enriquez, 40, also of a Kailua-Kona address.

Responding to a 3:09 p.m. call, Kona patrol and Traffic Enforcement Unit officers determined that Dyk was operating a 1998 Harley Davidson motorcycle and traveling south on Alii Drive when he struck Enriquez who was crossing the street in an easterly direction.

Enriquez was not in a crosswalk.

Fire Rescue took both victims to Kona Community Hospital.

Dyk was pronounced dead at 4:40 p.m. and Enriquez at 5:57 p.m.

Dyk was not wearing a helmet.

Police believe that alcohol and speed were factors in this crash. Police believe that the pedestrian had also been drinking.

Traffic Enforcement Unit officers have initiated a coroner’s inquest and negligent homicide investigation and have ordered autopsies to determine the exact cause of death.

Police ask anyone with information about the crash to call Officer Marvin Troutman at 326-4646, extension 229.

This is the third traffic fatality on the Big Island this year compared with one at this time last year.


Two people were killed in a motorcycle accident Sunday afternoon on Alii Drive, according to the Fire Department. The report indicates one person may have been a pedestrian.

Crews were alerted shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday and arrived to find two males laying in the road and one motorcycle on its side in front of Alii Lani Townhomes.

Traffic was diverted to Kuakani Highway.

    Jaison was the big brother I never had. He did everything from giving unsolicited advice to stepping in as my last minute prom date replacement. There will always be a candle burning in my heart when someone mentions the name “Jaison Enriquez”.

    Jaison sister has arrived on the Island today. The family is asking in liu of flowers please send donations to help with the costs associated with Jaison’s burial. If you need more info please contact me: Wendy (916) 966-8450

    absolutely tragic this happened weird thing they say jaison was traveling in an eastern direction? i had watched the victim crossing in a westerly direction he was already half way across the street with items purchased from the the store headed back to alii lani condos…i believe he forgot something at the store or dropped somthing and headed back to pick it up? he also was wearing a full leg brace without the aid of crutches when crossing which would be very difficult to pick a dropped item on the road…..anyways R.I.P jaison and mr Dyke…
