HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating a crash in Wahiawa that left a 34-year-old motorcyclist in critical condition on Thursday.

The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. on Kamehameha Highway near Wilikina Drive, snarling traffic for hours.

According to the Honolulu Police Department, a black Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling south on Kamehameha Highway when it reportedly disregarded a red light at the Wilikina Drive intersection and crashed into a gray Jeep making a left turn onto Wilikina Drive.

Investigators said the 27-year-old driver of the Jeep sustained minor injuries.

According to Emergency Medical Services, the motorcyclist suffered “extensive injuries” and was transported to the hospital in critical condition. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

HPD said speed does not appear to be a factor but are investigating whether alcohol or drugs played a role.

A portion of Kamehameha Highway between Ohai Street to Wilikina Drive was shut down but it has since been reopened.

An investigation remains ongoing.
