Single Car Collision With Utility Pole In Puna Causes Death Of Young Big Island Woman

Comments Off

KGMB TV News reports a traffic death on the Big Island on Sunday. Early Sunday morning shortly before 7 A.M. in Puna a woman was killed at the intersection of 25th Avenue and Paradise Drive. Doreen Kaina, 20, was apparently speeding when she lost control of her car and hit a utility pole.

"They don’t drive the posted limit. We need more signs up," Andrew Ariceayos, Hawaiian Paradise Park. "Just people need to slow down. There’s a lot of kids. Kids on the road."

A 19-year-old passenger was not seriously hurt according to police. Since the incident occurred on a private road it is not counted in state traffic fatality statistics.

The epidemic of traffic deaths in Hawaii continues. Again speed is implicated.
