Fatal Kailua-Kona Crash Kills One

Hawaii news reports that a 30-year-old woman has died following a three car crash on the Hawaii Belt Road/Highway 190. The woman was a Kailua-Kona resident. While the incident remains under investigation, initial reports inidcate that the woman was traveling north on the Upper Road, when her Kia sedan crossed the center line. The Kia then collided with a Jeep SUV that was traveling south. As the result of the impact, the Jeep went into a spin, and struck a third vehicle, a 2016 Hyundai, also traveling south bound. Two people in the Jeep suffered serious personal injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital. No one in the Hyudai was injured.

This accident marks the 21st traffic fatality, 6 more than a year ago.

Whenever a car accident occurs, it is important to conduct an investigation into all of the circumstances surrounding the incident. For example, it is important to review not only the actions of each driver, but also to look at the surrounding circumstances, i.e. what were the weather conditions at the time? Was the roadway properly maintained? Did proper signage exist concerning any potential roadway hazards. It is also important to examine the cars involved in an incident - were they subject to any recalls and were any parts - such as breaks or tires - defective?

Each accident is unique and a product of numerous circumstances including potential driver error or negligence, defective products, and roadway negligence.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a personal injury accident, before settling with an insurance compamy, it is in your best interest to speak to an experienced Hawaii personal injury lawyer who can perform an investigation and maximize your chances for recovering the compensation you deserve.
