HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The suspected driver in a crash that killed a woman Saturday morning hasn’t been charged, but remains in custody on an unrelated warrant, Honolulu police confirm.
According to police, 20-year-old Ken Aisek was arrested following the early morning crash. He was booked on suspicion of negligent homicide, first-degree driving under the influence and driving without a license.
The accident claimed the life of 32-year-old Brianne Lee.
Around 1:45 a.m. Saturday, the vehcile allegedly driven by Aisek was carrying three male passengers, all 18-year-old men.
At the intersection of Liliha Street and N. Vineyard Boulevard, police said Aisek blazed through a red light at a high rate of speed, broadsiding another vehicle heading east.
That east-bound vehicle was driven by Lee, who was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. Lee’s passenger, a 31-year-old Waipahu man, was seriously injured.
The three men in Aisek’s vehicle were also listed in serious condition.
Police believe speed and alcohol both were contributing factors of this collision.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing. Police said this was the 10th traffic fatality of the year compared to eight this time in 2018.
