LIHUE — Kauai police continue to seek information on a crash that occurred in Lihue in April that resulted in the death of 48-year-old Eric Shorr of Wailua.
According to police, about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, Schorr was walking on Kapule Highway, just north of the Hanamaulu Bridge, when he was struck by a pickup truck.
The truck continued on while bystanders in another vehicle stopped to assist the man and call for help. Schorr was transported to Wilcox Hospital where he later died.
The driver of the truck has not yet been located.
The truck in question is described as a mid-2000’s slightly lifted Toyota Tacoma or similar body style pickup truck with tires that extend outside of the body. It is believed to be either dark gray or black, but could be another dark color given the lighting conditions at the time of the crash. The paint coat was faded and possibly oxidized. It also had tubular pipe racks that are gray or silver in color.
Given the preliminary details of the investigation, the truck is believed to have sustained front-end damage as a result of the crash. There is likely hood damage near the center of the truck or toward the driver’s side.
The back license plate is believed to have a blue-tinted license plate cover. The front license plate cover would likely be missing or newly replaced.
Police continue to investigate this crash and urge anyone with information on the incident to call Officer Shawn Hanna at 241-1618 or Police Dispatch, 241-1711. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call CrimeStoppers at 246-8300.
