Kaneohe, HI – Police Officer Hospitalized After Two-Car Accident on H-3

February 22, 2023

Kaneohe, HI (February 21, 2023) – A police officer with the HPD is in the hospital in critical condition after a two-car accident that happened on an interstate in Kaneohe on Monday morning, February 20. 

Information from police shows this was the third accident on the H-3 highway overnight, leading to it being totally shut down. The Harano Tunnel was shut down so tow trucks could move vehicles that had been involved in another accident. One of the police officers who was blocking traffic to the tunnel was struck by a vehicle. 

The incident occurred near H-1 West and the H-3 off-ramp. The officer was transported to an area hospital with critical injuries. Police continue to investigate. 

We hope for the full recovery of the injured officer. 

Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents

Approximately 1.4 million people live on the Island of Hawaii. It is not surprising that thousands of car accidents happen each year in the Aloha State. More than 10,000 auto collisions occur each year in the state, causing injuries for countless people. 

Some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road at any given time are pedestrians due to their total lack of protection. If a pedestrian becomes involved in a crash with a vehicle of any kind, they are probably going to sustain serious injuries, if not injuries that are debilitating in nature. If you’ve recently sustained injuries in a pedestrian accident, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer as soon as you can to talk about your legal rights moving forward. 

Injured pedestrians should be fully compensated for the damages and losses they undergo due to the actions of negligent drivers. An injured crash victim who did not cause the incident should never have to go into debt paying for the costs associated with their injuries. 

If a reckless, careless, or negligent driver caused an accident that you were injured in, a Hawaii pedestrian accident attorney can help you to secure the economic recovery for the losses and injuries that resulted from your accident. 

You should be able to focus on your emotional and physical recovery without worrying about how you’re going to pay for the costs related to your injuries. You deserve to be compensated after being hurt in a wreck caused by another person’s negligence. A car crash lawyer is your best option if you are seeking compensation.
