NANAKULI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police say speed and alcohol may have been factors in a motor vehicle collision that claimed the life of a 26-year-old man late Friday night.

Police were called to Farrington Highway near Laaloa Street, just before Honokai Hale, at about 9 p.m.

"When they got here, they discovered that the white Honda was originally westbound when it clipped a black Mercedes, crossed over the center line and was struck by a green pickup truck," said police Lt. Robert Towne.

Towne said the driver of the 1995 Honda was taken to Pali Momi Medical Center, where he died.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 50-year-old man, was taken to the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center in good condition. The 30-year-old female driver of the Mercedes Benz was unhurt.

Police closed Farrington Highway's eastbound lanes and one westbound lane during their initial investigation. The highway was reopened shortly after midnight.

The death is Oahu's 46th traffic fatality so far this year.
