Police: Woman seen speeding, ‘lane splitting’ before critical H-1 motorcycle crash

Excessive speed appeared to be a factor in a motorcycle crash Saturday that slowed H-1 freeway traffic and left a 23-year-old woman in critical condition, police said.

The woman, of Kapolei, was seen traveling on a 2003 Honda motorcycle at high speed, weaving in and out of traffic, and “lane splitting” before striking the rear of a Volvo SUV, police said.

The crash threw the woman off the motorcycle, and she slid to a stop on the roadway.

Police said the woman was reportedly wearing a helmet and was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The crash happened at about 1:35 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of H-1 near the Aiea off-ramp. Town-bound traffic backed up after police closed several lanes for more than two hours to investigate.
