Officials identify motorcyclist killed in Pali crash

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The woman killed following a motorcycle crash on Pali Highway on Saturday has been identified by the city Medical Examiner’s Office as Amanda Kennedy, 22, of Kailua.

City officials said Kennedy died of multiple injuries due to the collision, which took place at the hairpin turn in the Honolulu-bound lanes of Pali Highway.

Police said Kennedy lost control of the 2009 Suzuki morotcycle just before the hairpin turn and hit the concrete median. She was thrown from the motorcycle and then run over by a second motorcycle.

The male motorcyclist, 23, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

Town-bound lanes of the Pali were shut down on the Kailua side for about three hours. 

It was the 47th traffic fatality on Oahu this year, compared with 44 at this date last year.
