A 52-year-old Kapaa man was killed this afternoon when the motorcycle he was operating collided with a sedan on Kuhio Highway.

According to police, the motorcyclist was heading north on the highway around 5 p.m. when the southbound sedan made a left turn toward Lanikai Street and collided with the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was transported to Wilcox Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the sedan, an 82-year-old Kapaa woman, was also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police closed Kuhio highway in both directions while an investigation was conducted.

Does anyone else think that the sedan driver's age had something to do with this tragedy? I am a 70 year old senior citizen and will probably regret this comment later, but when I renewed my driver's license earlier this year, I was surprised it was for 8 years. I know it would put a huge burden on the licensing branch but I think people over a certain age, say 80, should be required to take a road test in order to renew their license. I bet a lot of them wouldn't even try. BTW my dad who is close to a 100, drove well into his 80's and not very well.
