By Star-Advertiser staff


A 70-year-old man went to the hospital in serious to critical condition after a moped accident on Kalanianaole Highway in Waialae Iki Wednesday afternoon, police said.

The accident happened at about 4:10 p.m. east of Waa Street.

Police said the man was changing lanes and ran over a lane reflector as he moved to the center lane.

He lost control and was ejected from the 2012 moped, traveling in the town-bound lanes.

Police said he was not wearing a helmet.

The accident happened in clear weather and it is unknown if speed or alcohol were factors, police said.

Actually, it can impair your peripheral vision as well has hinder your ability to hear, but yes, better to go with a helment than without.

It always amazes me grown adults will settle for a moped with 10” wheels. Are you kidding me?! Stay off the highway with those things. You can legally ride the shoulder with any 50cc moped. The life you save may be your own!
