A 35-year-old Honolulu moped rider was taken to a hospital after he slammed into a utility pole in Kaimuki early today.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., police said the man was traveling eastbound on Maunaloa Avenue in proximity to 8th Avenue when he lost control of his moped and veered into the westbound lane.

He then crashed into a wooden utility pole and was thrown from his moped.

Police said he was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. The man was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Police said alcohol is a factor. Speed is not involved.

Police closed lanes in both directions on Maunaloa Avenue between 7th and 8th avenues to investigate. Officers reopened the roadway at approximately 4:30 a.m.

Police are continuing their investigation.
