November 10, 2022

Ewa, HI (November 10, 2022) – A two-vehicle collision left a 27-year-old motorcyclist dead on Wednesday, November 9th in the Ewa area.  

According to a spokesperson from the Honolulu Police department, the crash took place at about 2:20 p.m. in the area of Geiger Road and Kamakana Street when a small passenger bus collided with the motorcycle.  

HPD officials said that the rider was traveling eastbound along Geiger Road. As the motorcyclist pulled into the intersection, he was involved in an accident with a small passenger bus that was making a lefthand turn off Geiger Road onto Kamakana Street. 

Officers said that the bus driver, a 76-year-old woman, and her two passengers, an 11-year-old and a 12-year-old, were unharmed during the impact and remained at the scene.  

Although the motorcycle rider was wearing appropriate headgear, Emergency Medical Services pronounced him dead at the scene. His identity is being withheld pending family notification. 

Police have indicated that speed was most likely a contributing factor in this incident. Alcohol and drugs are not suspected but have not been formally ruled out.  

This is Oahu’s 44th vehicular death this year, compared to 37 at this time in 2021. 

The investigation is ongoing.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Motorcycle Fatalities in Hawaii

Ewa, HI - Motorcyclist Killed in Collision With Bus on Kamakana St

If you or a family member were hurt or killed in a motorcycle crash caused by negligence, you could be entitled to collect compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and various other damages. You are also entitled to assertive legal advocacy and a lawyer who can help you defend your rights.

Even if motorcycle riders adhere to every single safety law enacted by the state, like wearing suitable protective riding gear and an approved helmet, they still have very few defenses against the impact of a motor vehicle. This is why riders are much more prone to sustaining critical or even fatal injuries during a crash involving another vehicle. Motorcyclists are always at risk of being struck by another driver. They also need to remain vigilant of everyday road hazards, such as rain-slicked roadways, potholes, and cracks.

As indicated by data from 2017 that was recently reviewed by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, roughly 25 motorcycle riders die each year in two-vehicle collisions throughout Hawaii, and several hundred more are left with severe injuries. Although no one kind of motorcycle crash was listed as occurring more frequently than others, a characteristic they all shared was that the impacts were usually violent, and the injuries catastrophic. Annually, more than 80% of motorcycle crashes in the United States lead to the injury or death of the rider.
