Visitor critically hurt in moped crash

A 26-year-old Ohio woman sustained life-threatening injuries Tuesday in a moped crash near Kahana Bay in Windward Oahu, according to Emergency Medical Services spokeswoman Shayne Enright.

The crash occurred on Kamehameha Highway just past the Crouching Lion Restaurant at about 3 p.m.

Police said a 2021 Zhong moped operated by the visitor was traveling northwest on the highway when, for unknown reasons, the rider veered to the right and struck a metal guardrail.

She was taken in critical condition to an area hospital. The woman was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Police said speed might be a factor.

An investigation is ongoing.
