HONOLULU (KHON2) — A teenager is in critical condition following a motorcycle crash in the Hawaii Kai area.
The incident happened just before midnight near the intersection of Kalanianaole Hwy. and Kuliouou Rd.
According to police, A 30-year-old Honolulu male and his passenger, a 59-year-old Honolulu female traveling eastbound came to the intersection of Kalanianaole Hwy. and Kuliouou Rd. and had the right of way to turn left onto Kuliouou Rd. with the green traffic turn signal displayed. As the 30-year-old male made his left turn, a 17-year-old Honolulu male motorcyclist was going westbound on the highway, when he went through a red light and collided with the 30-year-old male’s car.
Police say the teen was wearing a helmet and that speed appears to be a factor in the crash. He was taken to the nearest hospital in critical condition.
The 30-year-old male and the 59-year-old female were not injured.
All westbound lanes were shutdown in the area, but reopened at 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
The investigation is on-going.
