AIEA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police are investigating a motorcycle crash that sent an Aiea man to the hospital in critical condition.

It happened on Aiea Heights Road near the Calvary Church of the Pacific at about 6:20 PM Sunday. Police say the 40-year-old man was traveling south when he lost control of his motorcycle, jumped the curb, struck a utility pole, went off an embankment and crashed near the Aiea High School campus below.

"Right now, we're investigating it as a single-vehicle, single-occupant motor vehicle collision," Lt. David Nilsen, Honolulu Police Department, said. "We don't have any indication at this time that there were any other vehicles involved."

Investigators are still trying to determine if speed or alcohol was a factor.
