Police believe that a 28-year-old Honolulu man was speeding Sunday when he failed to make a turn in the road near Hickam Air Force Base and was ejected from his motorcycle and was killed.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death of Shane Harding, the Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Police said witness reported the victim traveling at a high rate of speed traveling southbound on O’Mallery Bouleveard at 1:50 p.m. near the North Nimitz Highway overpass.
The victim failed to complete a left curve on O’ Mallery Boulevard and hit a barrier, police said. The motorcyclist was thrown to a grassy area near the road. Paramedics treated the victim and took him to Pali Momi Medical Center in critical condition where he died.
This was Oahu’s 38th traffic death, compared to 32 at the same time a year ago.
