Car Accidents in Hawaii
Auto collisions across Hawaii are one of the leading causes of accidental injuries. Each year, thousands of people are transported to area hospitals with injuries following collisions. The unfortunate truth is that many people involved in crashes are left with significant injuries that affect their lives forever.
There are several causes of motor vehicle accidents here in Hawaii. Some of the most common include:
- Speeding: Traveling at too high of a speed can increase the chances of a driver losing control of their vehicle. Unfortunately, there are many cases where people are speeding and crash into other vehicles at intersections and at curves in the roadway.
- Drunk Driving: Alcohol is one of the most common causes of crashes in Hawaii and across the United States. Driving while under the influence of alcohol can significantly affect a person’s ability to maintain control of their vehicle.
- Running Red Lights: When drivers do not stop at red lights, they are likely to crash into other vehicles that have the right of way to proceed through the intersections. This can lead to serious injuries.
