A man in his 40s has died after crashing his motorcycle shortly after noon Friday.

Friends and co-workers of the victim have identified the man as Don Crisostomo.

Police closed off the Farrington Highway westbound Ko Olina off-ramp around noon. Officials say Crisostomo was on the ramp when he lost control and hit an embankment.

Paramedics took Crisostomo to Pali Momi Medical Center in extremely critical condition.  He died a short time later.

We're told the victim had started riding a few months ago, so inexperience is being investigated as a possible factor.

"He was traveling with a female companion who was riding ahead and then noticed that he wasn't behind," said Lt. Robert Towne of the Honolulu Police Department. "When she turned around, she saw that he had crashed."

Crisostomo, who is originally from the Philippines, worked as a salesman at the Cutter Mazda dealership in Waipahu.

Police say he was wearing a helmet and it's unknown if alcohol played a part in the crash. 

This is the 14th traffic fatality of the year compared to 16 at the same time in 2012.

    Why no discussion of bogus ICBM alert in State of the State? Ige says he's talked about it enough

    Governor David Ige says he didn't talk about the missile alert mistake during his State of the State address because he's already talked about it. "I didn't think it was appropriate. I made lots of press statements Monday, last week and we had a hearing," said Ige. Some lawmakers say he should have addressed it, but others disagreed. "The elephant in the room was that there was no mention of the fiasco missile alert," said Rep Gene Ward (R-Hawaii Kai-Kalama Vall...
