HANAMA‘ULU — Kaua‘i police responded Saturday morning to a motorcycle crash on Laukona Steet in Hanama‘ulu.
A 28-year-old Lihu‘e man was heading eastbound on his 2008 Suzuki motorcycle around 4:50 a.m when he lost control and struck a utility pole.
The man was transported from the scene by ambulance to Wilcox Medical Center and later medevaced to The Queen’s Medical Center on O‘ahu, where he remains in critical condition.
Laukona Street in the area of the crash was closed for approximately three hours Saturday morning as KPD’s Traffic Safety Unit conducted an investigation.
According to a preliminary report, speed appears to be a factor in the crash. A toxicology report is pending.
“ speed appears to be a factor in the crash.“
You would expect that at least our newspaper could be “grammatically correct”. If there wasn’t any “ speed” there wouldn’t be any movement. And therefore no accident. I believe they meant “excessive” speed appears to be a factor.
