HONOLULU (KHNL) - Two moped riders were rushed to the hospital in critical condition after an early-morning crash in Honolulu.

It happened at the intersection of South Beretania Street and Ward Avenue at about 4:45 Monday morning.

Investigators say two people were on a single moped that entered the intersection on a red light. A car plowed into it.

The driver of the car was not hurt.

Police are still trying to determine whether speed or alcohol played a role.
