MAKAKILO (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating a fatal crash that happened on the H-1 freeway near the Makakilo off ramp.
According to officials, the incident happened at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The driver of the truck, a Kapolei man, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say he was not wearing a seatbelt.
