Two boys, ages 12 and 14, were ejected from the back of a pickup truck involved in a collision with another vehicle in Nanakuli Saturday morning, an Emergency Medical Services Division supervisor said.

Paramedics took the boys to a trauma center in serious but stable condition, EMS said. 

Two 17-year-olds, from the second vehicle, also went to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

The crash happened at about 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of Farrington Highway and Auyong Homestead Road, near the Nanakuli 7-Eleven store.

Police closed  one lane of the highway while they investigated the crash.

12 and older, I think. They should ban it, outright. It doesn't make sense that lawmakers made seatbelts mandatory and were pushing helmets on motorcycle riders for years, but still allow unrestrained riders in the back of trucks.

There is a YouTube video of a pick up full of people riding in the back that loses control and flips over. Bodies go flying everywhere and at least one of them is crushed by the pickup. They ought to show that in driver's ed.

In California it is illegal, unless there is seat or bench and it is provided with seat belts. Remember when there was Japanese import with seats behind the rear cabin of the truck??

I don't get it . They do it here all the time. You to restrain your dog, legally but not your kids? Any where else that would be child endangerment.

We know these kids. This is country, no hurry, not going far, just down to the store or across to the beach. It just takes one driver blasting, no regard for the Red light or conventions of driving and bang! Happens everyday in the country. We know these kids. Please be well.

I hope the kids are all right. One comment - this is not country; there is no place on Oahu that is country. For that matter, there is no place in the entire state that is country.

I've been lobbying the state legislate for years to put an end to anyone riding in the back of pick-ups. I was told a bill was to be introduced last year; nothing happened(like every previous session). The logic(?) has been a pick-up truck is considered a "family car" by many and this is the only means of transportation for these people. Not enough room in the cab? Ride in the bed. I still see very young kids riding in the open bed while the driver speeds along the H-1,2, and 3. Some riders are sitting on the fender wells. Sends chills down my spine. I'll keep plugging away hoping this issue will finally become law next year. Get involved. Call your legislator and let him/her know that action must be taken before any more are injured or killed.
