Honolulu, HI (April 30, 2023) – Two vehicles were involved in a crash in Honolulu on the night of April 30. At approximately 8:20 p.m., local emergency responders, including police, EMTs, and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to render aid to the people involved.
Sources say the incident happened on the H-1 Freeway in Kalihi at the Likelike Highway off-ramp. Honolulu Emergency Medical Services report that the incident involved two vehicles and caused injuries to six individuals.
Reports show that a truck was pulled over on the side of the road when five of the injured patients were in front of the vehicle, possibly repairing it. A van then struck the truck, and six patients were transported to the hospital in serious condition.
The injured victims included a 21-year-old girl, a 51-year-old man, a 20-year-old female, two men in their 20s, and an 18-year-old male. Authorities in Honolulu continue to investigate the circumstances of the accident.

Hawaii Car Crashes
Car accidents have become a serious issue in the United States and across the state of Hawaii. On average, over 17,000 vehicle crashes are reported daily in the United States that lead to injuries for over 7,500 people and take the lives of approximately 100 individuals per day. These crashes happen for a long list of different reasons, however, driver negligence is the main cause of American car crashes.
Especially in the past decade, things like driver distraction, intoxication, fatigue, and speeding have caused countless auto collisions that end in injuries and fatalities. In Hawaii, the main reason auto collisions occur is driver intoxication, followed by speeding and distraction. When drivers allow themselves to become distracted or intoxicated while behind the wheel, they often cause crashes that end in serious injuries and even death. On average, over 30% of fatal auto accidents that occur in the United States involve an intoxicated driver.
