Honolulu, HI (January 30, 2024) – A man was listed in critical condition after a motorcycle collision over the weekend, per local authorities.

At around 9:55 p.m. on Friday, January 26, Emergency Medical Service (EMS) clinicians were dispatched to the intersection of Oneawa Street and Kawainui Street in response to an accident involving a motor vehicle and a motorcycle. According to reports, the 45-year-old man who was operating the motorcycle was transported to a trauma center in critical condition. At this time, no additional reports of injuries have been received. Officers with the Honolulu Police Department are handling the ongoing investigation in the interim.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victim and his family. We hope for his full recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents in Hawaii

Motorcyclists are rendered entirely unprotected and exposed in the event of an accident with another vehicle (typically a car), which renders motorcycle riding extremely hazardous. The repercussions of a low-speed, relatively insignificant collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle can be catastrophic for all riders. Adding insult to injury, most of the common causes of these incidents can be traced back to driver negligence, including but not limited to:

  • Impairment: Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are most likely to lose control of their vehicles. These drivers may not be able to recognize colors or traffic control devices. They may be unable to maintain safe control of their vehicle and experience impaired judgment.
  • Driver distraction: There are so many accidents that take place on our roadways as a result of drivers who simply are not paying attention to the road ahead. Common distractions that lead to accidents in our state include cell phones, food, and even talking to passengers.
  • Aggressive driving: When drivers become aggressive while behind the wheel, they are likely to cause accidents that severely harm others. We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who zip between lanes of travel, tailgating other vehicles, and are reckless while operating their cars.
