Lahaina teen injured in crash

LAHAINA – A Lahainaluna High School student was hospitalized in critical condition after the moped he was operating hit a pickup truck Tuesday evening, police said.

The collision was reported at 6:08 p.m. on Honoapiilani Highway at Leialii Parkway.

The moped was heading south when the rider ran a red light at the Leialii Parkway intersection, police said. At the time, a Ford F-150 pickup truck was turning left from northbound traffic into Wahikuli State Wayside Park.

Police said the truck had a green arrow allowing it to make the turn, and the moped hit the passenger side of the truck.

The moped operator was identified as 17-year-old Christopher Boskoff of Lahaina.

He remained in critical condition Wednesday at Maui Memorial Medical Center.

The pickup driver, a 48-year-old Lahaina man, and two female passengers were not injured, police said.

At Lahainaluna High School, where Boskoff is a junior, “we’re all praying for him,” said Principal Michael Nakano.

He said a school counselor described Boskoff as a popular student who is “very personable, easy to talk to, easy to work with.”
