It was reported to the Honolulu Police Department’s Vehicular Homicide Section, that a 77 year old male on a Vespa Scooter, was headed west on S. King Street when he attempted to change into the lane to his right. The Scooter collided into a Tesla that was already occupying that lane. At the time of the collision, the Tesla was being operated by an 80 year old male with a 78 year old female passenger.
The operator of the scooter was transported to an area hospital in critical condition. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. The occupants of the Tesla were not injured.
