Driver was speeding before he hit car near Arizona Memorial, police say

A head-on collision Wednesday night near the Arizona Memorial sent four people to the hospital, including three visitors from Arizona.

Police said the three visitors from Arizona were in a car that was hit by another vehicle, which was speeding in the wrong direction on Kamehameha Highway.

The 28-year-old driver of a white Mercedes sedan was traveling west on Kamehameha Highway at 5:11 p.m. when he hit a 2014 Nissan driven by a 45-year-old woman from Arizona, police said.

The Mercedes driver was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition, police said. He had been speeding when he crossed from the westbound lanes into the eastbound lanes, police said.

The passengers of the Nissan —a 49-year-old woman and an 18-year-old male — were taken to the hospital in satisfactory condition.

  • What an idiot. Don’t he knows that speed kills, but thank god that no one died because of his stupid actions. Also he caused so much headache to all the other drivers on the road. All I can say is please drive with ALOHA and don’t speed. Sending prayers to the people in the Nissan.
