A 16-year-old boy was critically injured in a skateboarding accident Sunday.

The incident happened about 2:52 p.m. near 94-1040 Lumikula St. in Waipahu.

Additional details on the boy’s injuries were not immediately available.

It’s at least the second serious skateboarding accident within a month on Oahu.

A 16-year-old boy died April 17 in a skateboarding accident in Hawaii Kai. The boy was on a skateboard being towed by a moped, lost his balance, fell and hit his head on the pavement.
