HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A motorcyclist involved in a crash on Tuesday has died, according to Honolulu police.

Police said the 55-year-old man, who was on a 2013 Suzuki motorcycle, was driving near the intersection of Emerson and Green Streets at around 8:30 a.m. when he collided into a 1996 Nissan sedan operated by a 34-year-old female. 

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition -- suffering head and internal injuries -- and later died. Police believe speed may have been a factor.

This is the seventh traffic-related fatality on Oahu compared to three at this time last year, according to police.
