Kalanianaole Highway is back open this evening after a deadly motorcycle crash this morning by Sandy Beach.
Honolulu police say at about 10:30 a.m. a pack of motorcycles traveling Diamond Head bound slowed as a car ahead of them was waiting to make a left turn into Sandy Beach Park.
“The pack of motorcycles attempted to slow down. The green motorcycle that you see off to the side did stop. However, the red motorcycle didn’t stop in time and collided into the rear of the green motorcycle,” HPD Lt. Andre Peters explained.
35-year-old Donald Chung from Waianae was operating the red motorcycle and was thrown onto the road.
Chung was taken to a hospital where he later died.
The two people on the green motorcycle, a man and a woman, were taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in serious and good-stable conditions respectively.
