2 women, 75 and 83, seriously injured in McCully crash

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:30 a.m. HST, Sep 08, 2013

Two women were seriously injured Saturday when their car sideswiped a series of parked cars near Central Union Church in McCully.

Police briefly closed South Beretania Street between Punahou and McCully streets after the 10:15 a.m. crash. The car, a white sedan, was traveling at a high speed when it crashed into a line of parked cars on the side of the road, according to witness Fred Goya.

All lanes of South Beretania Street were reopened at 11:07 a.m.

The women are 75 and 83, but it wasn't clear which one was driving.

No wonder health insurance cost so much. We have to pay for the elderly's reckless driving. Next time use the Handivan.

Hmmm, 18-year-old driver crashes into tree in Kalaeloa. Not too elderly, huh? Get Handivan for 18-year-olds?

While good thoughts go out to the people involved in the accident, could Star Advertiser give a little more details? The stretch of Beretania from McCully Street to Punahou Street is really long (and busy), what would warrant that length of road to be closed?

Double negative? Bad and women? It's automatic that women are bad drivers. No need to mention the word, "bad".

good thought - also good example to others to always blame something/someone else instead of being personally accountable. this is one of the ways our culture has deteriorated - along with less respect for authority or age or amount of contribution to the skein of life, making excuses for personal inabilities, it's big business that's not hiring the unemployed, why should i work - all i have to do is make lot's of babies and let the govt pay my food, rent, and medical/health plan....! this is now the norm! i don't expect anything to change to soon. too bad for the young in the prime of their lives.

Most news outlets now rely on the public to provide them with the news and information, especially evenings and weekends - kind of like retail stores who are trying to force their customers to do self-checkout so that they don't have to pay for bodies. Corporate saving money on wages and benefits and not passing them on to the consumer in the form of lower costs or discounts. It's called self-enrichment.

And we derived all of this from two elderly women involved in a car crash? All because of a poster's (syhud's) flippant remarks? Really?

I dislike those self check out. As you leave the store, they treat you like a thief and assume you didn't scan every item.

Older drivers hit inanimate objects. More fatal accidents involve younger drivers that speed, drink and drive, and drive wrong way on freeways..
