A motor vehicle collision occurred on January 20, 2019 at around 11: 20 a.m. on Kalanianaole Highway, westbound just prior to Niuiki Circle on Oahu.

A 47-year-old male was driving on Kalanianaole Highway in the westbound direction when he collided with a second vehicle.

The second vehicle then collided into a third vehicle and the third vehicle collided into a fourth vehicle.

The male driver of the first vehicle was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in Serious condition while the driver of the second vehicle was taken to The Queen's Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.

All parties in the third and fourth vehicle suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene.

At this time speed may have been a factor, while alcohol, and drugs do not appear to be factors in the collision.  


Emergency Medical Services are responding to a multiple car accident on Kalanianaole Highway near Niu Valley Shopping Center. 

Two west bound lanes are closed. 

Motorists should expect delays.
