KAHULUI -- A motorcyclist was critically injured Wednesday night when he lost control of the vehicle, which hit a raised curb and overturned on Hukilike Street in Kahului, police said.
The 51-year-old Kahului resident remained in critical condition Thursday at Maui Memorial Medical Center, where he was transported with life-threatening injuries following the 6:35 p.m. crash, police said.
The 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling west on Papa Place when it hit the 6-inch curb on Hukilike Street, police said.
The motorcyclist, who wasn't wearing a helmet, was thrown from the bike, which landed across the road near a fence, police said.
Police are investigating whether speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
The crash followed a collision Sunday night in Lahaina that critically injured a motorcyclist. The 48-year-old Lahaina man suffered head injuries when the motorcycle ran a stop sign and crashed into a sedan at Wainee and Dickenson streets, police said. He remained in critical condition Thursday in the intensive-care unit of the hospital.
