On July 23, 2003 Officer Goto was riding in formation with his motorcycle squad to the leeward coast for traffic enforcement.

A vehicle traveling in the opposite direction swerved to avoid a falling box in the roadway and was struck from behind. The collision caused the vehicle to cross over the grassy center median into the pathway of Officer Goto and his motorcycle squad traveling in the opposite direction.

The vehicle collided into the formation of motorcycle officers, terminally injuring Officer Goto. Officer Goto later died from his injuries sustained in the crash.
