A 24-year-old woman was critically injured when she apparently lost control of her moped and crashed early this morning in Aiea, according to an Emergency Medical Services report.

The moped crash happened on Honomanu Street and Kamehameha Highway in Aiea at about 1:07 a.m., an EMS official said. Paramedics took the woman to the hospital in critical condition.

Police closed Ewa-bound lanes of Kamehameha Highway near the Moanalua Freeway split while they investigated the crash.

Police reopened the lanes by 4 a.m.

Too bad these dummies will never give up riding a moped until it's too late.

Moped riding can be safe, if they are TRULY operated as a bicycle, and not modifed to exceed it's manufactured recommended speeds. If a moped operator wants to ride as a motorcycle, they should perform all the same requirements....Safety Check, Licensed, Insurance & training.

I may drive a moped safely, but how about the other dummies who throw caution into the wind while they drive?

Lots of "ifs" in your story about riding a moped, BigC. Doubtful, 'eh? Better listen to your intuition.

lost control? bet that this moped was modified and the rider's ability was not, to match up. it's a self fulfilling prophecy. just because one knows how to ride a bike does not mean that person knows how to ride a moped. selling/buying/using a moped without the parallel required training is asking for trouble.
