2 die in Kauai motorcycle crash

Two people were killed after the motorcycle they were riding on crashed into an oncoming SUV on Friday night in Kapaa, Kauai police said.

The victims were identified as Shane Duncan, 39, and Sanoe Soares, 33, both of Kapaa.

Police said Duncan was driving a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle westbound on Kawaihau Road near the intersection with Makaleha Avenue at about 10 p.m. when he crossed over the centerline in a right-hand curve in the road and slammed into an oncoming 2014 Jeep SUV.

Soares was thrown from the motorcycle and ended up trapped under the SUV. Firefighters removed her, and medics took her to Wilcox Memorial Hospital where she died.

Duncan sustained major injuries and was taken to Wilcox where he also died.

The driver of the Jeep, a 53-year-old Kapaa woman, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was treated at a hospital and released.

Police closed Kawaihau Road for about four hours while officers investigated.
