UPDATE: 8:25 a.m.

A 69-year-old motorist may have suffered a medical condition when he sideswiped a vehicle and struck a wooden utility pole on Oahu’s North Shore Wednesday.

Honolulu police said the motorist was traveling northbound on Kamehameha Highway with a 75-year-old male passenger when he veered into oncoming traffic and sideswiped a vehicle traveling southbound at about 2:50 p.m.

The 69-year-old motorist then veered onto the shoulder and struck a pole.

Police said he was taken in critical condition to a hospital. The 75-year-old passenger as well as the occupants of the other vehicle were uninjured.

Speed, drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash.


A 70-year-old man was critically injured this afternoon after he sideswiped another vehicle and hit a pole along Kamehameha Highway fronting Laniakea Beach.

The collision took place around 2:50 p.m., the Honolulu Emergency Medical Services reported. Bystanders at the scene began CPR on the man, and paramedics were able to obtain a pulse while transporting him to an emergency room.

EMS also treated a 28-year-old man and a 27-year-old man, but both declined transport to a hospital.
