Pearl City, HI - Truck Driver Strikes, Critically Injures Cyclist on Kamehameha Hwy

There are multiple injuries that are commonly caused by drivers striking cyclists. These injuries can lead to a significant amount of pain, both physical and emotional. Additionally, injuries this serious can keep an injured victim from working for weeks or even months, resulting in a substantial loss of income. In extremely severe cases, a victim might even need an in-home carer available to them 24 hours a day to assist them with their daily needs.  

When cyclists are hit by larger, heavier automobiles, the injuries they usually receive are quite serious. A human body, frail as it is, is absolutely no match for a truck, car, or even a motorcycle, especially one in motion. Additionally, riders can easily be ejected from their bicycles and receive secondary injuries after they come into abrupt contact with the asphalt, another vehicle, structures, or buildings in the vicinity of the accident.

Some of the most frequent kinds of injuries that cyclists in Hawaii sustain include:

  • Broken bones/Fractured bones
  • Head injuries/Brain injuries
  • Contusions and lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Damage to internal organs
