AIEA, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the motorcyclist killed in a crash on the H-1 Freeway on Thursday morning.
He has been identified as 49-year-old Brian Berrigan, of Honolulu.
According to Honolulu police, Berrigan, who was not wearing a helmet, was speeding when he drifted into the next lane and crashed into another vehicle.
Police closed all westbound lanes of the H-1 near the Kaahumanu Street overpass after the crash around 4:05 a.m., causing gridlock on alternate routes for most of the morning commute.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 22-year-old man from Ewa Beach, was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence.
Police say speed and alcohol both appear to be factors in the crash.
All lanes of the H-1 were reopened by 7 a.m.
Authorities are still investigating.
