HONOLULULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man killed in a four vehicle crash on the H-1 freeway Thursday night has been identified as John D. Tyner, 49, of Waipahu, according to the city Medical Examiner's Office.

Tyner, who retired from the Navy, was driving a motorcycle in the West bound direction on the H-1 Freeway near the Waimalu offramp at about 9:21 p.m. when he was hit by a car that had been hit by another car.

Tyner was married with two children and worked for the shipyard at Pearl Harbor.

"Command Master Chief John D. Tyner served the Navy honorably throughout his career, which culminated in a very successful tour as Command Master Chief for 1,500 sailors. He will truly be missed and our thoughts go out to his family,"  said Navy Capt. Jeffrey Cole.

A 19-year-old Ewa Beach man has been arrested in connection with negligent homicide in the crash.
