Three people were hurt, one critically, during a motorcycle ride on Kunia Road on Saturday, emergency responders said.

Paramedics took two women, 57 and 64, to the hospital in serious condition and a 68-year-old man in to the hospital in critical condition about 12:40 p.m., according to a Department of Emergency Medical Services supervisor. All three were motorcyclists. 

More than one motorcycle was involved in the crash, which happened within a group of motorcyclists on Kunia Road about a mile north of Hawaii Country Club, the supervisor said.

Police did not have any information on the crash.

57, 64, 68 years old? Sort of old where motorcycle driving agility is paramount.

Not a nice comment but there is some biological basis in fact that a person in their late fifties and late sixties will have greatly diminished motor skills and sensory abilities. It is also a fact as seen in recent news that pedestrian (two 80 yr old plus pedestrians run over by garbage trucks) and motor vehicle deaths and injuries that the very young (ie 16 yr old scooter death on the H3 onramp) and very old (ie 88 yr old driver backing up and killing her 52 yr old daughter in a furniture store parking lot) are overrepresented in such motor vehicle injuries and deaths. No one can force a very young or old person from driving or operating a motorcycle but the discussion is whether through friends or family members or even through stricter licensing procedures to get impaired drivers due to the natural aging process to stop driving or riding on the streets? For example such as every 5 or 10 yrs motorcyclists all are required to pass a road test run by the motorcycle safety foundation?

I'm 55 and I have no diminished skills while operating my 1100 cruiser. I know hundreds of riders that are the same. Big difference between us and the kids on the bikes overriding their skill sets. If you pay attention to motorcycle fatalities.......it is usually mopeds and young people on sports bikes. Let's all ride safely, assume everyone is out to kill us......and be safe with the skills we have.
