Honolulu, HI (October 10, 2022) – A man sustained critical injuries when his motorcycle entered an intersection and crashed into a bus.on Sunday, October 9th in Honolulu.
The 43-year-old was riding a 2000 Honda motorcycle westbound on Salt Lake Boulevard. As he neared the main entrance of Aloha Stadium, he entered the intersection and collided with a 2017 Motor Coach Industries bus as it was heading northbound in the direction of the stadium.

The motorcyclist was taken by paramedics to a local hospital. His condition was originally reported as serious but has since worsened and been downgraded to critical.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Motorcycle Crashes in Hawaii
The weather in Hawaii is mild and pleasant year-round, making conditions very conducive to daily outdoor activities. It is common for visitors to the islands to rent cars so they can drive around and admire the stunning scenery or quickly access the numerous beaches and other recreational areas.
Regrettably, these drivers, distracted by unfamiliar roads and unforgettable landscapes, often fail to see bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles until it is too late. In addition to locals, many visitors relish the adventure that comes with riding these vehicles and are the unlucky victims of negligent drivers.
The sooner a lawyer intervenes in your case, the more readily their investigators will be able to reconstruct all of the essential factors of your crash. Invaluable evidence, such as obstructive shrubbery, skid marks, wet asphalt, and eyewitness statements, becomes much harder to obtain and evaluate as time passes.
The combination of a distracted driver, a vulnerable motorcyclist, and the often congested conditions of freeways such as Kalakaua Avenue, Kamehameha Highway, and Kalanianaole Highway in Honolulu often lead to tragic results for those riding motorcycles.
If you or a loved one was significantly injured during a motorcycle accident, you are most likely wrestling with the devastating nature of injuries like bone breaks, brain injuries, back injuries, or neck injuries. Your case needs to be evaluated by a skilled attorney as quickly as possible.
