May 13, 2023

Honolulu, HI (May 13 2023) – A woman identified as Anahi Anaya suffered serious leg injuries in a hit-and-run motorcycle crash in Honolulu on Friday evening, May 6. At around 8:20 p.m., emergency responders were sent to the scene to render aid. 

Sources say the incident took place on the H3 Freeway when Anahi was riding her motorcycle with a friend. They pulled over to check a mechanical issue when Anahi was hit by a car.

She suffered critical injuries to her legs and lower body and has undergone five surgeries with others scheduled. She is unsure if she will ever walk again. 

Authorities in Honolulu are working to determine how the crash happened. Few other details are available to report at this time. 

We hope for the full recovery of the injured victim. 

Motorcycle Accidents in Hawaii

Motorcycle accidents happen all the time in the United States and throughout Hawaii. Due to its beautiful weather and scenery, motorcycling is extremely popular in the Aloha State. Sadly, those who become involved in motorcycle accidents are usually more severely injured than those who sustain injuries in other types of traffic accidents. This is primarily due to the obvious fact that motorcycle riders travel with little to no protection while out on the road.

Additionally, most motorcycle crashes are caused by driver negligence. Over half of the reported motorcycle crashes in the United States are caused by the actions of distracted, intoxicated, fatigued, or speeding drivers. The most common type of negligence that contributes to motorcycle crashes in the United States is currently failing to yield the right of way. Common motorcycle injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Bone breaks/Bone Fractures
  • Damage to the spine
  • Disc Injury/Disc Herniation 
  • Death

Catastrophic injuries typically lead to catastrophic economic damages, as well as extreme non-economic damages. From hospital bills to lost earnings to intense pain and suffering, the economic impacts of a motorcycle crash can be absolutely ruinous to accident victims and their families. If you or someone you love were hurt in a motorcycle crash in Hawaii, you should consider how the accident occurred. If it was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, you probably have legal options available that can help you recover. 

The financial ramifications that stem from a motorcycle crash must be handled as soon as possible. Being stuck in the hospital and unable to work while bills are piling up can be stressful and overwhelming. You may be eligible to collect financial compensation for a wide array of damages that resulted from your accident.

Since July 2015, the law in Hawaii does not require motorcyclists to carry insurance. Due to this, riders who are injured by another driver’s negligence and do not have insurance have no choice but to turn to the insurance of the liable driver.
