It happened at approximately 1:57 p.m. near the Central Union Church along South Beretania and Punahou Streets.

According to HPD, a red Kia sedan was traveling westbound on South Beretania Street, when it apparently rear-ended a silver Chevrolet sedan near Pawaa Lane.

The collision caused the Chevrolet sedan to crash into a parked Toyota truck. The truck was not occupied at the time of the incident.

The red Kia sedan then veered off the road and struck a tree fronting the Central Union Church, according to police.

The operator of the Chevrolet sedan and her passenger sustained injuries and were reportedly in serious and stable conditions.

Meanwhile, the man driving the Kia sedan also sustained injuries to his head and body and was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Speed appeared to be a contributing factor.  It is unknown whether drugs or alcohol were involved.

HPD says an investigation is ongoing.
