Honolulu police say it happened on the on-ramp to the H-3 Freeway heading westbound from the Likelike Highway.

The three drivers were all friends and speed was likely a factor.

“About 3 o’clock in the morning here on the H-3 on-ramp on the Likelike Highway, Kaneohe side, three motorcycles went on the on-ramp at a high rate of speed. The bike on the inside of the roadway lost control and took out the bike that was on the outside,” said Lt. Bobby Towne of the Honolulu Police Department.

Emergency Medical Services says the injured man was taken to The Queens Medical Center in serious condition.

The third driver was NOT injured.

It's undetermined whether alcohol was a factor, but all motorcycle drivers were wearing helmets.

The on-ramp to the H-3 westbound from the Likelike Highway is closed while police investigate.
