allie does the story indicate that speed was a factor? At that hour with the lack of details it could have been a hazard on the road, the rider could have swerved to avoid something thrown from a car or he could have lost control because he missed a shift. For someone who CLAIMS to be a UH student (which pretty much everyone knows is not true) you display a conspicuous lack of insight and intelligence among other things. Perhaps if you were as quick to judge and jump to conclusions about yourself you could be doing much better with your life than being the resident SA Troll.

Because in all probability, these type of one person accidents, especially a 27 yr old on an on ramp at 8:30am Sunday morning when almost every else is sleeping and traffic on the freeway would be non-existent, the most likely cause is speeding. Even if the rider missed a shift it should have not caused a serious crash unless the guy was trying to accelerate at maximum rate and shifting at redline.

I wish there was more information. With no traffic around, this is an easy junction where you can merge at 45mph and accelerate to the 50-mph limit. Was the road wet? Driver inattention? Medical issues?

quite the contrary inverse, I ride the area and at that time of the morning it can easily be another drive that the rider had to swerve to avoid, someone throwing their soft drink cup with ice out a window right into the riders path or any number of other hazards or the rider might have fallen asleep while riding. Speed is the easiest cause to determine and clearly was NOT identified here.

IRT inverse, if the crash occured @ 430am, I'd agree with you. At 830am, hundreds of thousands of Oahu residents are already awake. Thousands of cars on the road already.

evidently inverse sleeps all day and does not know that there is traffic in that area about 8:30am

allie I see you make this mistake quite frequently. There is no statement about the crash being speed related and you don't have to be going very fast on a motorcycle for any crash to have serious repercussions. Perhaps you are dyslexic? I would suggest you get checked and undergo training. I can say from experience it does help alot. If you are not dyslexic then perhaps several courses in reading comprehension would be in order?
