December 9, 2023
Honolulu, HI (December 9, 2023) – A serious car accident involving a bicyclist and pedestrian happened in the vicinity of Moua Street and Fricke Street in the Makaha district last Monday, per the latest reports from the Honolulu Police Department on Saturday.
A 59-year-old female motorist was passing a male bicyclist on westbound Mopu Street when the collision occurred. A nearby hospital was notified, and the biker was sent there in serious condition. He later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. Despite sustaining no injuries, the 59-year-old female driver stayed at the site of the accident. Neither intoxication nor high speed seems to have played a role in this crash at this time, though officers are continuing to investigate.
We extend our sincere condolences to the deceased man’s family.
Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Hawaii
In Hawaii, authorities report that a significant number of individuals lose their lives as a result of motor vehicle accidents yearly. Tragically, these accidents are typically a result of drivers who fail to follow traffic laws. When it comes to drivers being distracted, texting and driving is becoming a serious problem in the United States, causing millions of accidents and injuries per year. In 2022, over 7,000 pedestrians lost their lives in car accidents across the country. The majority of these collisions were caused by careless drivers.
Pedestrians are more likely to suffer severe and fatal injuries and accidents because they do not have protection during accidents. As a result, they suffer significant trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, and other injuries that can ultimately take their lives.
