Numerous car accidents on Hawaii road attributed to speeding

Truth be told, some of Honolulu's roads lend themselves to speeding. These roads also see an inordinate number of car accidents as a result. Many people do not even realize that their speed has significantly increased until they look down at the speedometer. For others, the recognition that their speed has reached a dangerous level only becomes evident after a crash.

Locals near Waianae Valley Road here in Honolulu know that speed is a problem on the roadway. They got the chance to say so publicly after a single-car crash that occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on a recent Friday. Speed is suspected as a factor in the deadly accident. Preliminary police reports note that speed caused the driver to lose control and crash, but the family believes another vehicle might have been involved.

The condition of the wreckage required emergency personnel to extricate the two men in the car. The 29-year-old driver of the car did not survive the injuries he suffered. His 34-year-old passenger survived, but was considered to be in critical condition at last report. Loved ones are looking for answers as to what really happened that morning.

The critically injured passenger might be able to provide some answers when he is able. He might also exercise his right to file a personal injury claim against the estate of the deceased driver. Successfully establishing through the presentation of appropriate evidence that his injuries resulted from the driver's negligence could mean an award of damages to help with the financial burdens that accompany serious car accidents.
