22-year-old man dies after Kapolei motorcycle crash

The motorcyclist who crashed in Leeward Oahu early Saturday morning has died.

It happened at 1:15 a.m. on Kalaeloa Boulevard, 812 feet south of Farrington Highway.

According to police, the motorcyclist was traveling east on the H-1 Freeway and exited at the Campbell Industrial Park offramp at a high rate of speed. He lost control turning right on Kalaeloa Boulevard, crossed the grassy median, and hit a vehicle traveling northbound on Kalaeloa Boulevard.

The 22-year-old Aiea man was taken to the hospital in critical condition after crashing his motorcycle in Kapolei where he later died.

The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt.

Police say speed appears to have been a factor in the crash.

This is the 19th traffic death on Oahu this year compared to 18 at this time last year.
