By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:13 a.m. HST, May 08, 2012


An 18-year-old Hauula man was in critical condition at the Queen's Medical Center after a moped accident overnight in Hauula.

Police said the man was driving a mo-ped towards Kahuku on Kamehameha Highway when he collided with a car, also going north, at about 11:30 p.m. near the Kawaipuna Street intersection.

Paramedics took the man in critical condition to the Queen's Medical Center. He was not wearing a helmet.

Police said it is not known if speed or alcohol are factors in the crash.

The 60-year-old Laie woman driving the car was not injured.

Police shut down Kamehameha Highway for about an hour, from about 2:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m., as they investigated the crash. Traffic was re-routed to Kaipapau Loop.

Yeah, make separate section for moped/motorcycle accidents already. Too many happening.

A moped is not a bicycle and goes as fast as a car and yet there are no requirements for licensing and insurance. Weave in and out of traffic and have fun. Be careful, your first accident may be your last.

Aren't the drug dealers the ones who deserve to crash? I hope it was one of them.

I wouldn't ride mo-ped and if I did would not ride at night. Rode a Cushman motor-scooter when 17 and after mishap, never been on one again. Live and learn.
