Hilo, HI - Motorcyclist Taken to HMC After Kīlauea Ave Collision

Traffic accidents are sometimes the unavoidable result of an event that is completely unexpected, such as an animal running in front of your car, furniture, packages, refuse, or other detritus falling from a truck in front of you, or a force majeure, such as a violent and destructive thunderstorm. 

Inclement weather, such as thick fog, heavy winds, driving snow, rain, sleet, and hail can cause conditions already primed for a crash to quickly deteriorate.
