By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:42 p.m. HST, May 26, 2013

A 19-year-old Mililani woman died when she crashed a 2008 Chevy Malibu sedan down a ravine off Kamehameha Highway and was ejected from the car.

The accident happened near Waikalani Drive in Mililani at about 6:45 a.m.

Police said the woman was speeding, town-bound on Kamehameha Highway, when she lost control of the car, went off the road and down a ravine.

Police said she was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was the only occupant of the car.

It’s not known if alcohol was involved.

Her death is the 29th fatality on Oahu roads so far this year, compared to 23 at the same time last year.

Police closed the town-bound lanes of Kamehameha Highway for about three hours while they investigated the crash.

This is very poor writing. Was she the driver, passenger or in the tree? Car hit a tree, girl dies, can you get less descriptive than that?

It says she was the only person in the car. You can't figure out that she was the driver? Besides that, a 19 year old is now gone, that is the real ( and tragic) part of the story.

They added the "only person in the car" after I made my comment.

Why do you call yourself meat? I usually associate the name with "dead meat."

Agree with @samsdad. These news sites keeps adding or deleting info ALL DAY to their stories. Just check from time story is POSTED to LAST UPDATED. The Last Updated might change anytime. As the site gets new info, they put in or take out. A lot of the info I'm reading now wasn't in the story earlier. My ALOHA to her ohana.

To add to my comment above, I usually go to the other news sites and read their stories. That way, I try to put everything together. Two of the other 3 said she hit a tree. They also identified the woman.

Hawaiinewsnow, is even more funny, their headline says it's a 19 yr old teenager, I guess you need to go over 20 to be a woman.

Um, not that it's important or anything, but anyone aged 13-19 is considered a teenager ("Nineteen")...

HPD will tell you over and over they have pulled out fewer bodies of drivers wearing seat belts than those who do not wear them. While the investigation is ongoing, seatbelts rarely if ever fail in an accident, holding the driver safely inside the vehicle's protective steel cage.

Sorry for this tragic accident and may her family have peace. Was this accident and fatality preventable? Yes, absolutely! No 1. Speeding. No 2. Seat belts not being used. It was a matter of bad choice to speed and too lazy to spend a few seconds to click on her seat belt which most likely could have prevented her from ejecting from the vehicle. It is the law (seat belt and cell phones) and it shouldn't have to be enforced by HPD if everyone made the right choices and did their part. Everyone should take the law seriously and use some common sense.

Already two accidents in one week from speeding. The last one occurred on the Pali Highway. Why are drivers, both young and old, so addicted to speeding?

Really everyone, you think you all are on the mainland. It's Hawai'i if you can't catch it's, over your head. Bottom line is the teen/girl/woman is dead from a car crash. NEXT!

Sadly, another death associated with speeding. Speeding, drinking, texting, etc. will continue to result in traffic death until it registers in the minds of everyone. However, I don't expect this to happen anytime soon so articles like these will continue to pepper the news report.
