The Maui Police Department is investigating speed drugs and alcohol as possible contributing factors to a critical moped crash in South Maui last night.  The accident was reported at 8:46 p.m. when a moped collided with a pickup truck on South Kihei Road.  Both vehicles were traveling south, with the truck turning right into a driveway.  Acting Lt. Barry Aoki said the 23-year-old Kihei man operating the moped was transported to Maui memorial Medical Center in critical condition.  He was not wearing protective equipment.  The driver of the pickup truck and a passenger were not injured.  The accident remains under investigation.
