Motorcycle crash injures 2 on Moanalua Freeway

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:20 a.m. HST, Apr 30, 2012

An 18-year-old woman was in critical condition Sunday morning after the motorcycle she was riding on crashed into a car on Moanalua Freeway, prompting police to shut down all lanes of the freeway in the Waianae-bound direction.

Police said a 19-year-old man driving the motorcycle in the Waianae-bound lanes rear-ended a Honda Civic about 4:05 a.m. Sunday roughly 400 feet before the Ala Aolani Street overpass. Both riders of the motorcycle were wearing helmets and were thrown onto the freeway. 

The man had multiple injuries and went to the Queen's Medical Center in good condition. The woman went to Queen's in an unknown condition with abrasions to her right arm, but her condition later worsened to critical, police said.

An 18-year-old man driving the car and his 18-year-old female passenger were not hurt.

Officers closed all four lanes of Moanalua Freeway in the Waianae direction because of debris from the crash scattered across the roadway.

The freeway reopened about 5:20 a.m.

Big difference between highway cameras to reply later to ana lyze accidents and the Joe Souki van cam monitoring which was nothing more than a lame attempt to put more money in State coffers.

I wonder when these motorcycle riders are going to learn. Stop speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. When a motorcycle goes up against a car the car always wins.

It is one thing for some reckless motorcycle rider to kill or maim himself on his own motorcycle however the really sad part of this story is the 18 year old passenger who was critically injured. This story is not new as a few years ago a teen age girl who was also a passenger on a motorcycle was killed on Oahu in a similar situation of the rider obviously riding recklessly. There is ONLY one reason for a motorcycle rider to hit some car from behind at 4am in the morning when traffic on the freeway is extremely light; and that is reckless riding.
