Car accidents remain a leading cause of death and injury

Motorists in Hawaii are always at risk when traveling on crowded roadways across the state. To mitigate some of this risk, drivers should always stay alert, pay attention to surroundings and practice defensive driving habits. However, it is likely that all drivers will be involved an accident at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States.

A recent crash in Kauai resulted in injuries to two people and a driver possibly facing charges. The crash happened during the nighttime hours on Kuhio Highway. According to reports, a car headed southbound attempted to make a left turn across the highway. Reports said the driver of the car turned into the path of an oncoming pickup truck, causing a collision.

Both occupants of the pickup truck were injured. The driver received non life-threatening injuries, but the passenger was seriously injured and rushed to a hospital, authorities said. The driver of the car was arrested on suspicion of negligent injury, according to police. Reportedly, the highway remained closed for several hours following the crash.

As populations continue to rise across the state of Hawaii, roadways are becoming more dangerous with each passing day. Unfortunately, car accidents are almost inevitable. When negligence in an accident results in injury or death, victims and families can take action by consulting an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. A successfully litigated lawsuit could result in vital financial relief that families could use to recover any monetary losses that may have occurred due to this devastating experience.
