A Lincoln East graduate was killed in a motorcycle accident in Hawaii over the weekend.

According to Hawaii News Now, Honolulu police said 20-year-old Timothy Montague died at the scene of a fiery motorcycle crash late Saturday night.

Montague is a 2016 graduate of Lincoln East but had been living in Wahiawa, Hawaii.

Police said Montague was heading west on the freeway just after 11 p.m. when he lost control of his motorcycle near the Kualakai Parkway off-ramp.

He was ejected from the bike and crashed into a metal guardrail. Upon impact, police said he landed behind the guardrails.

Video shared with Hawaii News Now showed the bike on fire in the left shoulder of the freeway as firefighters and other emergency crews responded.

Police do believe that Montague was wearing a helmet during the time of the accident, Hawaii News Now reports.

Police added that speed appears to be a factor, but it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved.
