A woman driving a motorcycle was killed and her passenger injured in a hit-and-run accident before dawn today on the ramp connecting three freeways in the Halawa Interchange.

Police were questioning a possible suspect, a 23-year-old man, who was found later in Pearl City.

A man driving a black 1995 Mazda 4-door sedan ran over the motorcyclists at about 4:15 a.m. and then fled the scene, said police Lt. Bennett Martin.

The accident happened on the ramp connecting the Koko Head-bound lanes of the H-1 freeway to the H-3 and Moanalua freeways.

The woman driving the motorcycle, 38, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Her passenger, a 28-year-old woman, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.

Police closed the ramp where the accident happened as well as the ramp from the Waianae-bound lanes of the H-1 freeway for several hours as they conducted their investigation.

A witness saw the suspect car and reported it to police, said Martin, who heads the Traffic Division’s Vehicular Homicide Section.

Patrol officers discovered the man in his car sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 6:45 a.m., parked on the side of the road in Pearl City, Martin said.

The man was taken to Kapiolani Medical Center at Pali Momi for treatment.

The freeway ramp closure caused major traffic problems for commuters heading into Honolulu.

“It’s a parking lot,” said KSSK radio traffic reporter Jason Yotsuda at the city’s Traffic Management Center. “Fortunately for us, the private schools and University of Hawaii are not in session yet. It could have been a lot worse.”

To help ease the traffic, the state Department of Transportation director opened the Zipper and High Occupancy Vehicle lanes to all vehicles at about 5:45 a.m.

“We’ll try to do what we can when we have these types of accidents,” DOT spokesman Scott Ishikawa said. “Unfortunately, we’ve had these accidents during the morning rush hour.”

The city’s Traffic Management Center also worked with the signals on Kamehameha Highway through Pearl City and Aiea.

“It worked for a while, until there got to be too many cars,” Yotsuda said.

The shut-down also clogged Farrington Highway through Waipahu, he said.

Burn him. And I don't mean figuratively. We should get it made into law. Everyone can accept that accidents happen. But if you run, we break out the gasoline.

Good news, thanks to some eye witness's at the scene they were able to detain the car and the driver. They believe speed and alcohol were a definite factor. The guy cut off a car and as he was changing lanes clipped the back tire of the bike (2003 Honda Shadow) and ran right over the driver. Unfortantely neither one of the ladys were wearing helmets. I believe the second lady will be okay.

The guy was arrested for fleeing a scene and 1st negligent homicide

Have to agree with you a bit on this. One reason I got rid of my bike. To many young punks out here fashion riding...either that or it's the "biker boyz" wanna be's. If the track didn't suck so bad out here i'd have one

To be honest, i'm not sure what for. He didn't suffer any damage really to the car, since he just clipped the tire. He was in the hospital for a few days, just got released the other day
