KOLOA — Due to safety concerns, Kaua‘i police have moved the roadside memorial set up over the weekend in the triangle at the junction of Maluhia Road and Kaumuali‘i Highway to the nearby shoulder, a county news release states.
A fatal accident involving a motorcyclist and a vehicle occurred at that location on Friday.
The motorcyclist, Charles Sumera, a 46-year-old Kekaha resident, died in the crash.
“We understand the sentiment behind the memorials and our hearts go out to the families of the victims,” said Acting Captain Mark Scribner with the Kaua‘i Police Department Patrol Services Bureau. “However, we ask that any such memorials be carefully placed so as not to create a traffic hazard or distraction to motorists.”
