2 men, ages 59 and 68, hospitalized after Kaimuki moped collision

Honolulu police said two men, ages 59 and 68 years old, were hospitalized after the mopeds they were operating collided in Kaimuki on Saturday.

The Honolulu Police Department said a 59-year-old male was heading west on Alohea Ave. just after 10 p.m. Saturday when the blue Zhong moped he was riding was rear-ended just east of Francis St. by a 68-year-old man on a Honda moped.

Neither man was wearing a helmet at the time.

According to Honolulu Emergency Medical Services, paramedics responded at 10:10 p.m. and administered life-saving treatment to the 59-year-old, who sustained head injuries, before transporting him to a hospital in critical condition. EMS also provided life-saving treatment to the 68-year-old, who sustained serious lower leg and upper torso injuries, before police said the man was sent to a hospital in serious but stable condition.

Police said speed, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the collision, but an investigation continues.
