Advertiser Staff Writer

A man was killed last night in a fiery crash on the H-2 Freeway near Mililani.

The accident occurred at about 9:50 p.m. in the north-bound lanes of the freeway near the Mililani off-ramp.

HPD officers said a pickup truck caught fire, trapping the driver inside.

Fire Department rescuers got the man out of the truck and to ambulance personnel, but he died at Wahiawa General Hospital, police said.

The north-bound lanes of the H-2 Freeway were shut down and motorists were diverted to Ka Uka Boulevard while police investigated the crash.
