KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A man is in critical condition after being ejected from the moped he was operating early Saturday morning.

Police say a 30-year-old was traveling south bound at a high rate of speed on Kahekili Highway a half mile south of Hui Iwa Street in Kaneohe around 2:30 a.m. when for unknown reasons he lost control of the moped and was ejected onto the roadway.

A passerby vehicle saw the man on the street and alerted emergency responders.

The moped operator was not wearing a helmet at the time of the incident.

Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash, police say.
