Honolulu, HI – Vehicle Crash Leads to Injuries on Kapiolani Blvd

September 9, 2022

Honolulu, HI (September 09, 2022) – A traffic accident left a victim with injuries and a tree sprawled across a roadway in the area of the Ala Moana Center on Thursday, September 8th. 

Officers from the Honolulu Police Department, the Honolulu Fire Department, and other response teams closed down the westbound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard between the First Hawaiian Bank Kapiolani Branch and Mahukona Street as police investigated the crash, paramedics tended to victims, and crews worked to remove the tree. 

Witnesses indicated that one person was transported from the scene. Their current condition is unknown.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Auto Collisions in Hawaii

Honolulu, HI - Vehicle Crash Leads to Injuries, Downed Tree on Kapiolani Blvd

Vehicle collisions can be extremely damaging to you and your family. After an accident, however, you do have rights and could be entitled to bring a claim for compensation. You should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately following a car accident in Hawaii. It is essential that you quickly get to work protecting your rights so you can get the financial compensation you deserve.

Never assume you were at fault for an accident. Several factors are involved when it comes to assigning fault, and there could be circumstances at play that you are unaware of.

Some of the circumstances include:

  • Driving laws
  • Driver impairment
  • Vehicle defects
  • Faulty or malfunctioning traffic signals

Even if you are issued a citation, that does not automatically mean you are liable. Always speak with a lawyer before pleading guilty or paying any fines. Doing so could damage your case or give the other driver the opportunity to sue you.

A car accident is a terrifying experience, particularly when it leaves you injured. Necessary medical treatments, being unable to work, and the anxiety that follows both of these will have a hugely adverse impact on your life.
