Motorcyclist hurt in crash on Kaukonahua Road

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:33 a.m. HST, Sep 03, 2012

A motorcycle crash on Kaukonahua Road Sunday evening left one man in serious condition and prompted police to temporarily shut down the road.

According to police and paramedic scanner transmissions, the rider apparently lost control of the motorcycle, struck a guard rail and was thrown about 20 feet onto the roadway shortly before 6:30 p.m.

Kaukonahua Road was closed from Wilikina Drive to Thompson corner for about half an hour.

I can almost guarantee that the public will blame the road instead of the driver just like several yrs. ago in a fatal car crash where the victim's friends were saying the State should straighten the road. DAMM ABSURD!! Roads don't kill....its the idiot drivers driving under the influence or speeding and I can almost guarantee that the motorcyclist was speeding and lost control...nothing more and nothing less.

Isn't it about time that the top of 'snake road' was reengineered to straighten it out a bit. All the signs and blinking lights is not preventing deaths and accidents. Sure, some of the problems can be attributed to drivers who are non-thinkers, but the design of the roadway is an invitation for the dead reaper to visit too often.

The road follows the topology of the land. It is not a particularly dangerous road if people don't speed and try to pass on blind curves.

Roads don't kill...its the people driving their machines that kill or be killed but unfortunately, the roads always get the blame.

Parents and friends of reckless drivers who get killed or maimed often refuse to believe their family member/ friend was reckless that caused the death of themselves or others. They will blame the road as poorly designed or possesed by demons or whatever. One recent example was some kids one night driving on hilly Kilauea ave in Kaimuki lost control of their minivan and crashed into a wall killing the driver or passenger. Parents swore up and down and tried to covince the public and petition state legislatures that the road was dangerous because it lacked a streetlight and without the light a driver could 'accidently' go airbone and lose control due to dips in the road. Never mind it is physically impossible for any vehicle to 'catch air' if they are going the speed limit for that road. I know people have to go through stages such as denial, anger, etc when dealing with a death, but they need to be confronted when they demand road modifications and changes that are completely unwarranted.

The report is very inaccurate. The rider struck the guardrail and was thrown from his bike off the road and into a ditch.
