  • Paramedics took a man

The 20-year-old Mililani man, who was killed Monday in a two-car crash near Honolulu Airport, had just enlisted in the Hawaii Air National Guard and was awaiting orders to attend basic training in Texas.

The Medical Examiner’s Officer identified the victim as Mark Spofford.

The Hawaii Air National Guard said that Spofford was to be assigned to the 154th Maintenance Squadron after completing basic training and technical school.

Police said the accident occurred at the intersection of Kamehameha Highway and Valkenburgh Street at 4:05 a.m. 

Police said Spofford was driving a sedan south on Valkenburgh when a Jeep traveling west on Kamehameha Highway broadsided his car. Police did not say which driver had the green light.

Spofford was ejected from his car, police said. He was taken in extremely critical condition at 4:40 a.m. to Tripler Army Medical Center, where he died.

The driver of the Jeep, a man from Ewa Beach, was not injured, police said.

Police said it was Oahu’s 15th traffic fatality this year, compared with 16 at this time last year.
