Truck kills 2 walkers, 1 bicyclist in Honolulu intersection
HONOLULU (AP) — Police say a suspected drunken driver in a pickup truck veered into a crowded Honolulu intersection, killing two pedestrians and a bicyclist and injuring four others.
Authorities say alcohol and speed may have played a role in the crash Monday evening.
Lt. James Slayter tells the Honolulu Star Advertiser newspaper that the truck hit other cars several blocks away and then sped across three lanes of traffic to try to turn onto a street.
He says the truck drove over a median and knocked over a light pole where the pedestrians and bicyclist were waiting. He also plowed into another pickup truck.
The 27-year-old driver and the driver of the other pickup were hospitalized in serious condition. Two pedestrians were in critical condition, while one was in good condition.
