Punaluu, HI – One Injured When Car Enters Sinkhole on Kamehameha Hwy

June 26, 2022

Punaluu, HI (June 26, 2022) – The Honolulu Police Department responded to several incidents in Punaluu that eventually spurred a road closure on Kamehameha Highway on Friday, June 24th due to a large water main break that caused heavy road damage. 

Police received a call at about 7:15 p.m. reporting a vehicle caught in a sinkhole. According to sources, a woman sustained non-critical injuries during the incident but was able to exit her vehicle safely.  

Her current condition is unknown.

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

Car Crashes in Hawaii

Punaluu, HI - One Injured When Car Enters Sinkhole on Kamehameha Hwy

It is not unusual for an injured victim to have no idea what the first step is in bringing a personal injury claim. They are inundated with appointments and bills during their recovery process, all while being in an incredible amount of pain. They are also forced to take time off of work, adding to the already unimaginable amount of stress they are under trying to stay ahead of financial ruin. Add to this unbidden calls from insurance adjusters offering them ridiculously small settlements and, unsurprisingly, many victims consent to a lowball offer just to put an end to the nightmarish process.  

Whether you are a lifelong local or a tourist on vacation, a car crash can create many unpleasant and unwelcome hardships in your life. Your injuries could be extensive and demand a lengthy and expensive hospital stay, physical rehabilitation, and an extended recovery period.
