A 42-year-old Waianae man was killed and his 53-year-old passenger was in serious condition at a hospital following a collision between a pickup truck and sports utility van Wednesday night in Maili.
Police said the 42-year-old man, driving a Toyota truck, was leaving a gas station near Hookele Street and Farrington Highway just after 8:30 p.m. when the truck was hit by an SUV driving by a 26-year-old Waianae woman.
Honolulu Fire Department Capt. David Jenkins said firefighters had to extricate the man, who was pinned inside the truck.
Paramedics took the man to the hospital in critical condition. Also hospitalized were the 53-year-old passenger in the Toyota and the 26-year-old woman who drove the SUV, police said,
One or more vehicles struck a light pole and downed communication lines, Jenkins said.
He said two other vehicles had minor involvement in the crash.
