On April 15, 2023, at about 1:25 AM, a fatal single motor vehicle collision occurred on Likelike Highway in the Kaneohe area.
It was reported to the Honolulu Police Department, Traffic Division, Vehicular Homicide Section, that a 29-year-old adult male motorist was traveling southbound on Kahekili Highway, when he failed to negotiate a right turn onto Likelike Highway and collided into the concrete center median, before he lost control, veered right of the roadway, and collided into the metal guardrail.
As a result of the collision, the 29-year-old adult male motorist was transported, via Emergency Medical Services, to an area hospital in critical condition where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The 29-year-old male motorist was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.
At this time, speed appears to be a factor in this collision. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs are factors.
This is the 17th Traffic Fatality on Oahu this year, compared to 16 during the same time in 2022.
The investigation is ongoing.
