Highway Collision in Aiea Leaves One Critical, Another Arrested for DUI

Honolulu, Hawaii - Honolulu's law enforcement and emergency response teams swiftly reacted to a vehicular accident involving two cars in the early hours of Saturday morning, situated in Aiea.

According to official statements, a 19-year-old adult female motorist was heading southward on the Hickam overpass in the incorrect lane when her vehicle collided with a 28-year-old male motorist traveling northbound.

The impact caused the 28-year-old male driver to lose control of his vehicle, resulting in a collision with a concrete barrier. His car subsequently went airborne over the wall, ultimately coming to a rest upside down on the H1 West Freeway / Arizona Memorial off-ramp, situated beneath the overpass.

Authorities have reported that the 28-year-old male driver was urgently transported to a local hospital via Honolulu EMS and is currently in critical condition.

The 19-year-old adult female motorist was also taken to a nearby medical facility, where she remains in serious condition.

In light of the circumstances, the female driver has been taken into custody on suspicion of "Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant."

Initial assessments by law enforcement suggest that alcohol may have played a role in this unfortunate collision. However, the potential involvement of drugs or excessive speed has not been ruled out.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities are diligently working to piece together the events that led to this incident. Further updates will be provided as new information emerges.
