On Friday, January 22, 2021, at about 6:35 p.m., a Major Motor Vehicle Collision occurred in the Waialua area involving a vehicle and a motorcycle.
A motorcycle operated by a 26 year old male, was traveling northbound on Kaukonahua Road, when it lost control along the “S” turn, north of Wilikina Drive. Upon impact with the roadway, the motorcyclist was struck by an on-coming Ford sedan.
The operator of the sedan, a 22 year old male, was uninjured and remained at the scene.
Although the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, he suffered serious injuries. He was transported to an area hospital in extremely critical condition where he succumbed to his injuries and died.
Speed appears to be a contributing factor in this collision on behalf of the motorcyclist. It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were factors.
This is the 4th traffic fatality on Oahu this year, as compared to 4 at this same time last year.
This investigation is on-going.
