HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 63-year-old woman was critically injured in a moped crash in Downtown Honolulu on Tuesday morning, authorities said.

It happened around 7:40 a.m. on Punchbowl Street.

Police said the moped rider exited the Queen’s Medical Center driveway and turned left when she struck an Acura SUV traveling southbound.

The moped rider suffered head injuries. The 43-year-old driver of the Acura was not injured.
