August 29, 2023

Honolulu, HI (August 28, 2023) – A major car crash occurred in Honolulu on the evening of August 29. At around 10:45 p.m, responders including EMTs, fire crews, and police were sent to the crash site to render aid. 

Injuries resulted from the collision that occurred on the Waimalu Exit of the H1 Freeway near Moanalua Road. At least one individual was in need of emergency medical care at the scene. 

Two vehicles were towed away by tow trucks after blocking the roadway for some time, forcing local drivers to use different routes. Those with serious injuries were taken to the hospital as needed.

Authorities in Honolulu continue to investigate. 

Our thoughts are with everyone involved as we hope for their full recovery.

Hawaii Car Crashes

 A steady increase in traffic accidents has been observed in Hawaii in recent years. According to studies, impaired driving caused 42% of traffic-related deaths in 2022, followed by speeding and distracted driving. Hawaii is experiencing an increase in collisions caused by drivers using their cell phones while driving. 

Based on the most recent statistics, Hawaii’s auto accident rate is expected to increase in 2023. Highways and intersections are the most common places for accidents to occur. In 2023, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists will also face increased risks.

It is important for drivers to maintain a safe speed and maintain a safe distance between cars in order to ensure their safety. Seatbelts should be worn by all drivers and passengers, and distractions should be minimized while driving.
