The driver of the Corvette, 55-year-old Mark Matsushima, died from his injuries en route to Castle Medical Center, and his 33-year-old passenger, Sefilina Gray, died at the scene, pinned inside the car.
Meanwhile, the 21-year-old driver of the truck is in serious condition at Queen’s Medical Center and faces two counts of first-degree negligent homicide, among other charges, police said.
The crash occurred just after midnight Friday on Kamehameha Highway in Waiahole on the island of Oahu.
Sadly, Matsushima’s friend, Elvis Magagi, had waved good-bye to him as he left his house minutes before the crash, never thinking it would be the last time he would see him alive.
“I was right behind him,” Matagi said. “He had left my house and I went to shower and change clothes and I shot out right after he had left. We were gonna come here and play ping pong. And that’s when I drove up on the scene.”
A witness told police that the pickup driver had passed another vehicle near a bend just before the crash.
“Right now, speed and alcohol are possible factors,” police Lt. Bobby Towne said. “Just based on the evidence of the roadway in the collision, we’re looking at speed. And some people did detect an odor of alcohol coming from the driver of the pickup truck
