Wahiawa, HI (October 17, 2022) – A 22-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Wahiawa on Sunday, October 16th.
At about 3:50 p.m., the rider was involved in a collision on Wilikina Drive. The impact forced the victim off the roadway and ejected him from his bike.
The fatal motorcycle accident led police to shut down both sides of the roadway, between Kaukonahua Road and Kamananui Road. The area remained impassable until late Sunday night.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Motorcycle Accident Deaths in Hawaii
According to data released by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration in 2017, roughly 25 motorcyclists are killed each year in Hawaii crashes, and hundreds more are left badly injured.
Although there is no one common kind of motorcycle accident, the feature they all share is that they are usually violent and the injuries catastrophic. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents nationwide result in injury or death to the rider.
Motorcyclists are always in danger of being hit by another driver. They also have to worry about common road hazards, such as slick roadways, cracks, and potholes.
If they obey all safety protocols laid out by the state, like wearing an approved helmet and appropriate protective gear, riders still have almost no defense against the impact of a car. This is why motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to being seriously injured or killed during a collision with another vehicle.
