Aiea man, 43, dies days after motorcycle accident

A motorcyclist who died Friday from injuries sustained in a crash earlier this week has been identified by medical examiners as Warren White Jr., 43, of Aiea.

Police said White was driving a blue 2001 Yamaha R-1 motorcycle that crashed into a black 2001 Volkswagen Golf Tuesday afternoon.

The car was trying to make a U-turn on Kaonohi Street into the path of the motorcycle about half a mile south of Iho Place at 5:32 p.m. 

The motorcycle slammed into the front quarter panel of the passenger side of the car, police said. The impact caused White to be ejected from his motorcycle.

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition where he died about 11:30 a.m. Friday.

White was not wearing a helmet. Investigators believe speed may have been a factor in the crash. It was raining lightly when the crash happened.

White's death was 15th on Oahu's roads so far this year. There were nine at this date in 2011.

White was also the sixth motorcyclist killed in 2012. There were nine total in 2011.

Six motorcyclists killed in little over 2 months. Most were speed related and not wearing helmets. Slow down people, it's not worth getting hurt or killed.

It really is hard to fathom why politicians refuse to recognize that for whatever reason, people are not necessarily very smart. In many cases they think primarily about themselves, with no regard for those who depend on them, love them, care about them, etc. They are immortal, and can never be hurt. Guess what? How many more will die this year because they are too pigheaded, selfish, or just plain stupid to wear a helmet? It seems the politicians are not much brighter; at least they can be voted out of office in favor of people who don't enjoy seeing brains on the highway,but only if intelligent people are willing to make this an issue, and express their wishes at the ballot box.

These people who get themselves injured or killed are probably the ones who don't want the government telling them that they must wear helmets, buckle up the seat belts, and don't speed. Yet, when something happens... the victims, or their relatives cry out why didn't the government do something?

Body armor for them?

Riding at 5:30 PM toward the West it was still daylight, and if there was any Sun with wet roads makes for blinding glare. No helmet, wet roads, perhaps speeding (as the article highlights the possibility) and it is the perfect storm for such a wreck and injury.

Contrary to most observations to this article, The car was making a u turn on a four lane very busy street. The description of the location puts it very near to the driveway of the Pearl Country Club. Kaonohi street runs north and south so sun blindness was unlikely a contributor. The vehicle proceeding straight has the right of way over a u turn. The driver of the car is likely to make the heirs to the motorcyclist very wealthy. Too many motorists fail to see motorcyclists due to inattention.
