4/23/12 UPDATE: An autopsy conducted Monday (April 23) revealed that 77-year-old Alehandra Lauro of Kailua-Kona died from a medical condition and not from a four-vehicle collision April 19 at the intersection of Route 190 and Hinalani Street in Kailua-Kona.
As a result, police have reduced the number of traffic fatalities to date this year from 12 to 11.
On Friday I posted about a 77-Year-Old woman who was killed in a car accident in Kona.
…Responding to a 2:58 p.m. call, Kona patrol officers determined that the woman was operating a 2011 Hyundai multi-purpose vehicle and traveling south on Route 190 when she rear-ended a 2006 Toyota four-door sedan being operated by a 34-year-old Waikoloa man.
The Hyundai continued south and sideswiped a 1999 Jeep multi-purpose vehicle traveling north which was being operated by a 42-year-old woman from Kailua-Kona.
Debris from the crash also damaged a 1998 Mazda pick-up truck also traveling north and being operated by a 51-year-old Kailua-Kona man.
The Hyundai continued south on Route 190, struck a stop sign at the intersection of Route 180, ran off the left side of the road, struck an embankment and overturned in the parking lot of an old nursery which is just south of the Route 190 and Route 180 intersection.
The Hyundai then caught on fire and the driver was burned in the vehicle.
The drivers of the other vehicles were not injured…
Well here is a video that was posted on YouTube that is apparently the aftermath of the accident.
WARNING… Their is GRAPHIC LANGUAGE and it’s a pretty graphic video.
This is what the poster of the video said about what they witnessed:
“I believe woman driver had heart attack lost control hit about 3 cars before driving up over a wall and caught in fire.”
