Moped rider seriously injured

A 40-year-old Kahului man suffered life-threatening injuries when the moped he was operating collided into a car Thursday night on Dairy Road at Hukilike Street in Kahului, police said.

The collision occurred at 7:08 p.m. as a white 2015 Hyundai Sonata four-door sedan was traveling northwest on Dairy Road and negotiating a left turn onto Hukilike Street, police said. A blue 2016 Daixi Zhenhua moped, traveling southwest in the inner lane on Dairy Road, collided into the passenger side of the Hyundai, police said.

The moped operator, who wasn’t wearing a helmet, was transported to the Maui Memorial Medical Center emergency room in critical life-threatening condition, police said.

The 41-year-old Lakewood, Colo., man driving the Hyundai was wearing his seat belt and wasn’t injured, police said.
