August 12, 2022

Kailua, HI (August 12, 2022) – A collision involving an officer from Honolulu is being investigated by the Honolulu Police Department.

The incident took place on Kaneohe Bay Drive behind Central Union Church Windward on Saturday, August 6th when a police vehicle in pursuit of a motorcyclist was involved in an accident. 

The impact caused the subsidized SUV to smash through a fence, roll down a hill, and finally crash through a stone wall in Kailua. The vehicle then went up in flames.   

The officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

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

Vehicle Rollovers in Hawaii

If you were hurt due to the carelessness of another driver, you are most likely entitled to pursue a personal injury case against the person responsible. 

People who are injured in a rollover accident may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries and other damages. Not only are accident victims forced to cope with daily pain and suffering, but they also face rapidly accumulating medical bills while being unable to work.  

Although a majority of car accidents are the result of driver error, some can also can be attributed to or made worse by faulty safety mechanisms or a defective product.  

A rollover accident occurs when a vehicle overturns onto its roof or side. These accidents are predisposed to causing serious injuries to the occupants of the involved vehicle as well as those around them. 

Certain vehicle models have roofs that are unable to withstand the impact produced by a rollover accident, contributing to the injuries and deaths they cause. Additionally, some vehicles are very prone to rollovers, specifically sport utility vehicles.
