(KHNL) - Three seperate accidents on Oahu Sunday left two men dead and two other people seriously hurt.

A crash in west Oahu claimed the life of a man Sunday afternoon. The accident happened on the H1 freeway at the Ewa off-ramp, where a tractor-trailor apparently lost control, flipped over, and pinned the diver. 51-year-old Russell Fox died at the scene.

A teenage boy was rushed to the hospital in serious condition. The crash tied up traffic for several hours. The off-ramp was re-opened just before 7:00 PM Sunday

Over on the windward side; a bicyclist is in critical condition after a car struck him around 10:30 Sunday morning. It happened on Kamehameha highway near the Hauula 7-11. Traffic investigators say for some reason the bicyclist cut in front of the car and was then hit. The victim is a man in his sixties. It does not appear speed or alcohol were factors in the accident.

Just down the road a few minutes later, a motorcyclist with a 10-year-old passenger, collided with a Hawaiian Telcom truck. It happened on Kamehameha highway near the Kaaawa 7-11.

49-year-old Mark Lamm was taken to Castle Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. His passenger, a 10-year old girl was also taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police say this section of Kamehameha highway can be a dangerous area.

"This stretch of road is heavily used, especially on the weekends. Again, we ask that people be aware of each other. Motorists have to be aware of other motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians" said Lt. Darren Izumo of the Honolulu Police Department.

It is not known if speed or alcohol played a role in the Kaaawa crash.
