Fatal moped crash in Manoa

MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police say speed was a factor in a crash that killed a teenage moped rider.

It happened just after 10:00 Saturday night at the intersection of Manoa Road and Lowrey Avenue.

Police say the 17-year old was traveling in the wrong lane on Oahu Avenue with another moped rider who was in the correct lane.

That's when a vehicle attempting to make a left turn onto Manoa Road collided with the moped rider in the wrong lane.

The 17-year old was ejected from his bike and pronounced dead at the Queen's Medical Center.

Just a day after, a makeshift memorial stands at where the crash occurred.

The driver of the car was not injured.
