A 26-year-old Schofield Barracks soldier, who was speeding and weaving in and out traffic Thursday night on his motorcycle, collided into the rear of a sedan on the H-1 freeway near the University exit and was taken to the hospital, police said.
The accident occurred at 8:09 p.m. And the closure of two lanes of the H-1 eastbound for several hours to allow for a full traffic investigation snarled traffic.
The soldier was initially listed in critical condition, but his status has since been changed to good, police said.
The motorcyclist, driving a 2007 Yamaha, first hit the rear of a 2003 Chevrolet sedan driven by 61-year-old man and then hit the concrete median just before the University exit. Neither the driver of the sedan nor his 57-year-old female passenger needed to be hospitalized, police said.
Police said speed was a factor in the accident.
