Two people were in critical condition Sunday after roadway crashes.

A woman in her 20s was critically injured in a moped versus truck accident Sunday morning on the North Shore, according to an Emergency Medical Services report.

EMS said the incident happened around 11:45 a.m. near 59-055 Kahae Road in Pupukea. 

The woman was taken to the trauma center in critical condition.

Later Sunday, three people were injured -- one critically -- in two separate motorcycle crashes.

A 24-year-old man was critically injured when the motorcycle he was operating crashed into a utility pole along Mililani Cemetery Road around 3:42 p.m.

The man was taken by Emergency Medical Services to an area hospital.

Shortly after 5 p.m., a man and woman, both 23, were injured in a motorcycle crash on the H-1 freeway's eastbound Kalihi onramp.

Both were taken to a local trauma center in stable condition.

At first I thought this article was an accidental repost from a few weeks ago. It is hard enough to drive a car while on vacation in a place that you do not know, but to get on a two wheeled vehicle that you barely know how to drive seems a bit lolo. I hope this one survives.

Many visitors rent mopeds to get around on Oahu because renting a car is so expensive and that includes paying for all of the taxes and the obscenely high cost for gasoline.

Do you have a heart, GoldenRule? This is a tragic turn of events for all of us because this island isn't simple enough to allow for the safety of moped drivers. How are they different from bicyclists? When do we learn to share the road? We are all family.

I saw a bicyclist ride in the center lane last week on Beretania St just before the State Capitol and a SUV behind him was not happy the bicyclist was holding him and other cars up in one of the center lanes. Technically, the bicyclist is allowed to pedal down Beretania St, but in one of the center lanes? Never mind HECO or Hawaiian Tel is blocking a couple of the lanes for a month or two for some cable repair work, further holding up traffic on Beretania in that area. I thought the SUV was going to hit the bicyclist from behind but did not, instead there were quite a few words between the bicyclist and the SUV driver. The bicyclist, although technically not doing anything illegal, knew very well the massive backlog of cars he was creating on Beretania but he did not care. We are all not family and one day if that bicyclist gets run off of the road, I am not saying he deserved it, but if you play with fire, eventually you will get burned.
