H-1 crash suspect who failed to render aid arrested

An arrest of Steven Headington, a suspect wanted for failure to render aid following a single-vehicle motor collision on the H-1 freeway on May 21, has been made, according to the Honolulu Police Department.

Police sought the public’s help finding Headington, 42, on Friday through a Honolulu CrimeStoppers bulletin.

Following an investigation, police identified Headington as the driver of a Toyota that crashed into a concrete median on the westbound H-1 freeway near the Wilder Avenue offramp at about 4 a.m. on May 21.

As a result of the collision, a man in his 30s was ejected onto the roadway and later died. A woman who was in the truck also sustained serious injuries. The driver of the truck fled the scene on foot.

At the time of the incident, police were investigating what happened prior to the crash, and how the man ended up in the bed of the truck. There were reports of an initial collision between the truck and a 2018 Toyota Camry prior to the crash, and that a male passenger from the latter had jumped into the truck bed when it attempted to flee.
