Kailua, HI - Fatal Pedestrian Crash Takes One Life on Keolu DrEvery year, tens of thousands of traffic accidents are reported in Hawaii. A percentage of these accidents involve pedestrians who suffer serious injuries or even lose their lives. Pedestrian accidents are some of the most dangerous types of traffic accidents due to the unprotected nature of pedestrian travel.
