HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Emergency personnel responded to two separate crashes involving mopeds on Oahu on Wednesday.

A 55-year-old moped rider was critically injured after he apparently lost control and hit the pavement, Emergency Medical Services said.

The moped rider was traveling east on a bike path behind Leeward Community College when the crash happened around 2:20 p.m.

Police said the man, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered injuries to his head.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Later that night, a 58-year-old man on a moped was found unresponsive on the North Shore.

He was discovered on the side of the road around 10 p.m. near the intersection of Kamehameha Highway and Pupukea Road.

Paramedics said he was listed in serious condition when he was taken to the hospital for treatment.
