Honolulu man, 35, identified as driver in wrong-way fatal crash

A Honolulu man is dead following a single-car crash along Monsarrat Avenue in Waikiki, on Friday.

Police have now identified the driver involved as 35-year-old, Jared Rader. 

The incident happened just before 8 p.m., Friday night, near Kapiolani Park. A witness told Island News the car was traveling at a high rate of speed, when it hit a light pole, jumped a curb and slammed into a tree. According to the witness, the vehicle appeared to have split in two upon impact. 

"He just missed a couple cars going up Monsarrat and hit the curb.. all I saw was dust," witness, Michelle Auyong said. "He had a death wish, basically, cause when he hit the curb.. no brake lights."

Police say the driver of the 2003 Toyota Corolla was going the wrong way on Monsarrat. The light pole the driver hit fell on a parked bus.

According to HPD, the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only occupant in the car.

It is unclear if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. An investigation is underway.
