Man killed in motorcycle crash in Kailua


A 72-year-old man from Pearl City is dead following a motorcycle crash in Kailua.

It happened at around 11:34 a.m. Friday, near the intersection of Kalanianaole Highway and Ulupii Street.

Police say the man was heading eastbound on his motorcycle when he lost control and was thrown onto the road.

He was then hit by a second motorcycle traveling in the same lane.

The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition, where he died.

Speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this crash.

This is the 46th traffic fatality on Oahu compared to 31 at this same time last year.
