Three separate crashes overnight left one man dead and nearly a dozen injured

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Three separate crashes occurred overnight on a dangerous Friday evening, killing one man and injuring nearly a dozen, officials said.

Police say around 8:15 p.m., an 88-year-old man was trying to cross the Moanalua Freeway when a motorcyclist fatally struck him.

Officials say he was struck by a 21-year-old male motorcyclist exiting the highway onto Moanalua Road.

The motorcyclist and a 22-year-old female passenger were both taken to an area hospital in serious condition, officials said.

Police say at this time neither speed, drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in this collision.

The investigation is ongoing.

Just over an hour later, police and first responders responded to another car crash downtown, sending four women to the hospital, police officials said.

Police say the crash happened at 1199 Bishop Street around 9:30 PM after a car crashed into a concrete pillar.

The women range in age from 22 to 49 years old.

Officials say three were in serious condition, one in stable condition.

EMS treated all four patients for multiple injuries before transporting them to the hospital.

It is not clear what the cause of the accident is.

Finally, early Saturday morning, four more women were involved in a crash near Punaluu in the Hauula area.

EMS and HFD responded to the single-vehicle crash around 1 a.m

Police say three of the women, aged 21, 26 and 30, were treated and taken to hospital.

Officials say a fourth passenger in the vehicle, a 26-year-old woman, refused transportation after suffering minor injuries.

The cause of that wreck is also being investigated.
