Limo Accident is Deadliest Transportation Accident in Nearly a Decade

The recent fatal limousine accident is the deadliest transportation accidents in nearly a decade. The incident occurred when the driver blew through a stop sign, travelled across a parking lot and crashed into a parked car. The 18 passengers of the limo, and two pedestrians were killed in the incident. The incident remains under investigation with authorities investigating the safety of the limousine, the limousine company, the driver and the roadway itself. In addition to several concerns about the vehicle and the driver, the intersection is notoriously dangerous.

This incident marks a departure from the recent trend of declining motor vehicle deaths over the last several decades. 2016 began an uptick in fatal transportation accidents, with data not yet revealed for 2017. Hawaii has followed this trend, with transportation and pedestrian deaths spiking in recent years. This is despite public safety campaigns aimed at improving roadway safety, including improving safety features on cars and efforts at decreasing drunk driving. Many blame the inaction on improving dangerous roadways.

Hopefully, this latest deadly action will spur action to improve roadway safety. For more information, or if you have suffered injuries in a Hawaii transportation accident, please contact the dedicated Hawaii personal injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
