HONOLULU (KHON2) — A man is dead after a single vehicle crash on the H2.
It happened around 5:45 a.m. Sunday.
This happened on the H2 freeway by the Leilehua off ramp.
An SUV was going North on the H2 Freeway when for an unknown reason it left the roadway and collided with the center guard rail.
After hitting the guard rail the SUV flipped multiple times before coming to final rest in the left inner lane of the H2 South Freeway.
It appears that all three occupants were ejected from the vehicle and onto the roadway.
Police closed H2 by the Leilehua off ramp at that time in both directions.
According to emergency medical service officials, a 32-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. A 21-year-old man, and a 22-year-old man were taken to the hospital in serious condition. EMS treated three patients with advanced life support and transported all to emergency rooms.
The possible driver and one of the passengers were taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition and were later downgraded to serious condition.
The other passenger was taken to Wahiawa General Hospital in Critical Condition where he later died.
The H2 southbound was reopened about 45 minutes later. Northbound lanes opened around 10 a.m.
The collision occurred in the early morning hours when it was still dark.
At this point speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors in this collision.
