1 dead, 2 injured in Makakilo crash

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.

Police say a truck was heading eastbound in the left lane when the 68-year-old driver tried to overtake another car using the shoulder lane.

He then lost control, veered across the freeway and hit a car in the far right lane. The car hit the guard rail and both vehicles crossed the freeway and hit the center median.

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

The 34-year-old man and 27-year-old woman in the other car were taken to the Queen's Medical Center in serious condition.

Investigators believe speed may have been a factor.
