May 23, 2022
Kaneohe, HI (May 22, 2022) – One person was injured and a vehicle went on fire following a vehicle crash on Kamehameha Highway on Sunday, May 22nd.
The event took place at about 6:50 p.m. near the Heeia Kea exit in the area of the Heeia Kea Boat Harbor.
Honolulu police officers and first responders both responded quickly to the scene.
The north and southbound lanes of the highway were closed down in the immediate area as police attempted to determine the cause of the crash. Fire crews were also on hand when one of the vehicles involved in the collision caught fire.
At least one patient was taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment of non-critical injuries.
This incident is still under police investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Given the steadily growing number of motor vehicles on Hawaii’s roadways, outpaced only by modern technological advancements that provide innumerable driver distractions, car crashes are a common sight on our state’s roads and highways.
Common causes of Hawaii car accidents include:
- Inattentive drivers, like those who drive while sending text messages or talking on their phones, eat, drink, or reach for objects
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Drivers who ignore traffic signals or signs, and disregard the speed limit
- Drivers who are tired
- Drivers who don’t use their turn indicators or commit unlawful driving behaviors
Traffic mishaps are occasionally the inescapable result of an occurrence that is totally unexpected, like an animal charging onto the roadway in front of your car, furniture, refuse, packages, or other debris falling off the truck right in front of you at high speeds, or an act of God, such as a violent thunderstorm.
Poor weather conditions, like fog, gale-force winds, torrential rain, sleet, hail, and snow are all capable of worsening driving conditions and potentially causing an accident.
