WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A 70-year-old Maui man suspected of causing a fatal accident nine months ago will be tried Jan. 26 in 2nd Circuit Court.

The Maui News (https://bit.ly/1BwMpVj) reports Darrell Orwig of Makawao pleaded not guilty at arraignment last week to a charge of second-degree negligent homicide

Prosecutors say Orwig just before 1 p.m. March 1 was behind the wheel of a small sedan that crossed the centerline of Baldwin Avenue in Makawao and struck a motorcycle operated by 55-year-old William Lyon of Makawao.

Lyon suffered life-threatening injuries and later died.

Judge Rhonda Loo ordered Orwig not to drive until the case is resolved. She also ordered Orwig not to contact Lyon’s family.

Defense attorney Philip Lowenthal says Orwig hasn’t been driving.

Orwig is free on $5,000 bail.
