A 59-year-old man was critically injured after a moped crash in Waikiki early this morning.
The crash occurred on Kapahulu Avenue near the Honolulu Zoo, according to Emergency Medical Services.
At around 2:30 a.m., the moped rider was traveling eastbound on Kalakaua Avenue when he turned onto Kapahulu Avenue at a high rate of speed, according to the Honolulu Police Department.
The 59-year-old man lost control, veered into the curb and was ejected from the moped into a light pole, police said.
Responding paramedics transported the man to the hospital in critical condition. He was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred.
Police said speed appears to be a contributing factor in the crash, although it is yet unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved.
An investigation is ongoing.
