EAST OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man is dead following a multiple-vehicle crash on Kalanianaole Highway Sunday.
Emergency crews responded to the crash near East Halemaumau Street fronting the Niu Valley Shopping Center around 11:15 a.m.
When crews responded, they transported two patients to the hospital: A 74-year-old man who was listed in critical condition, and a 47-year-old man who was listed in serious.
Honolulu police confirmed Sunday afternoon that the 74-year-old later died at the hospital. His identity has not yet been released.
According to police, the 47-year-old driver was heading west when collided with another vehicle, which was being driven by the 74-year-old. In a chain reaction, that vehicle then hit a third vehicle, which then hit a fourth.
Drivers in the third and fourth vehicles suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene.
“At this time speed may have been a factor, while alcohol, and drugs do not appear to be factors in the collision,” police said.
HPD traffic investigators remained on scene until about 2 p.m. when the road was fully reopened.
