Hawaii Traffic Collisions

Serious car crashes happen all too frequently in the United States and across the islands of Hawaii. Every year, more than 6 million vehicle collisions are reported throughout the country, a percentage of which occur in Hawaii. In 2020, approximately 20,000 car crashes were reported in Hawaii. Over 100 were fatal, and approximately 3,200 ended in injuries. Across the nation, more than 3 million people are hurt in car crashes yearly, while approximately 40,000 lose their lives.

According to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the main reason auto collisions occur is distracted driving. Distracted driving is displayed by any action that takes a driver’s attention away from the road. Some other common reasons auto collisions happen in Hawaii and throughout the nation include fatigue, intoxication, and speeding.
