A young man was killed Saturday night in a fiery motorcycle crash on the H-1 Freeway.
Honolulu police say the man was heading west on the H-1 Freeway around 11:05 p.m. As he approached the Kualakai Parkway off ramp, the man reportedly lost control and collided with a metal guardrail.
Upon impact, police said the man was ejected from the bike and landed behind the guardrails. Video shared with Hawaii News Now shows the bike on fire in the left shoulder of the freeway as firefighters and other emergency crews responded.
Police said the man died at the scene. They believe he may have been wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
The man’s identity has not yet been released. At one point, all westbound traffic was rerouted off the freeway as police conducted the investigation.
Police say speed appears to be a factor, but it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved.
