Man killed in H-2 crash in Waipio identified

One dead in fatal crash that closed portion of H-2

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating a fatal crash on the H-2 Freeway in Waipio on Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 9:20 a.m. near the Ka Uka Boulevard off-ramp, authorities said.

According to police, a vehicle was traveling northbound on the H-2 when it lost control and crashed into two vehicles.

Initially, Emergency Medical Services said a 26-year-old man was listed in critical condition and two others — including a 65-year-old man and a 41-year-old man — were seriously injured.

Police later said one person, a passenger of the first vehicle, died at the hospital. He was identified Wednesday evening as 25-year-old Trey Furumori.

Investigators say speed appears to be a factor, but they don’t believe drugs and alcohol are involved.

Northbound lanes of the H-2 were shut down for hours, snarling traffic in the area. All lanes have since been reopened.

Officials have not provided further details on the incident.
