A 22-year-old Aiea man who died in a fatal crash in Kapolei over the weekend has been identified as Baden P. Ratterman.
Ratterman died of multiple blunt force injuries in the crash on Kalaeloa Boulevard early Saturday, according to the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police said he was traveling east on the H-1 freeway at about 1:15 a.m. He exited onto the Campbell Industrial Park offramp at “a high rate of speed” and lost control as he turned right into Kalaeloa Boulevard.
Police said Ratterman traveled across a grassy median and struck a vehicle operated by a 28-year-old woman traveling northbound on Kalaeloa Boulevard.
He was thrown onto the roadway upon impact. Police said Ratterman was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he later died. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
This is the 19th traffic-related fatality on Oahu compared with 18 at the same time last year.
