Tow truck driver identified in fatal H-2 crash

 

*** WARNING THE IS A VERY EMOTIONAL NEWS VIDEO TO WATCH***

 

 

A tow truck driver died after he and another man were struck early this morning on the shoulder of the H-2 freeway by a suspected drunk driver.

 

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Aaron Malama, 43, of Honolulu.

 

About 1 a.m., according to police accounts, a 45-year-old woman was driving northbound on the H-2 when she veered out of her lane and collided with a stalled vehicle before the Mililani Tech Park off-ramp while it was being hooked up to a tow truck.

 

She then struck Malama and the other man, 49, who were standing next to the tow truck, police said. The woman stopped shortly afterwards.

 

Emergency Medical Services transported Malama to an area hospital in critical condition and the older man to an area hospital in serious condition.

 

Malama died of his injuries at the hospital, police said.

 

Police arrested the woman who ran into the men on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant and two counts of first-degree negligent injury.

 

At this time, police said alcohol appears to be a contributing factor of the collision. An investigation is ongoing.

 

Police closed all northbound lanes of the freeway for about three hours to conduct an investigation.

Honolulu police said it was the first vehicle-related fatality for Oahu in 2020.

Far Too Many RIP DRIVER!

 

I have to ask, do we know if he was in ANSI Clothing. Not that it would stop a drunk driver, but I see too many not wearing their ANSI. Had a Driver Step Out of the truck the other night. I was not in a tow truck, but I did Slow Down & Moved Over. His work clothes had some reflective stripes cause I could see them on the bottom pant legs. Problem was he was wearing a sweat shirt with a embroidery design, not a towing related design. Granted it was a little cold and rainy. But Dude, grab an ANSI jacket your on the white line.
