Motorcyclist dies in crash in Kaneohe

A 30-year-old motorcyclist died after he slammed into a utility pole in Kaneohe early today.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office has yet to release his name pending notification of next of kin.

At about 12:45 a.m., police said the Kailua man was traveling eastbound on Kaneohe Bay Drive when he lost control of his motorcycle and veered onto a grassy shoulder.

He then slammed into a wooden utility pole when he was thrown from his motorcycle.

Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police closed lanes on Kaneohe Bay Drive at Namoku Street for approximately three hours to investigate.

He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Police said speed and alcohol are not factors.

This is the 57th traffic-related fatality compared to 48 at the same time last year.

Police are continuing their investigation.
