Man critically hurt after driving into bus, power pole in Kalihi


A 27-year-old man was hospitalized in critical condition early Tuesday morning after he collided into a bus, then electrical pole in Kalihi.

It happened just after midnight on Middle Street near the Kalihi Transit Center.

Emergency Medical Services says a sedan with one occupant was traveling mauka-bound at an unknown speed when he collided into a bus, then drove into a pole. The bus driver was not injured.

“No passengers were on the bus, the driver was coming into the facility. The other driver was injured critically and that’s the concern we have for the other driver,” Roger Morton, Oahu Transit Services said.

Hawaiian Electric says about 60 customers were without power following the crash, but most were restored around 1:15 a.m.

An investigation is ongoing. At this time of this post, it was unclear how fast the driver was going or if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
