Retired Kaua`i Police Chief Darryl Perry is listed in serious but stable condition at The Queen’s Medical Center, recovering from injuries he sustained when the bicycle he was riding was struck by a vehicle on Hawai`i Island over the weekend.
His wife, Solette Perry, asked Queen’s to issue the following statement to the media:
“We appreciate all the calls and all the support we’ve received. Please continue to keep my husband in your prayers. He was riding his bicycle down Highway 11 and was broadsided at the Kea`au intersection. He was wearing a helmet and that’s what saved his life. The staff at Queen’s has been so wonderful and he’s in excellent care.”
Perry was struck by a vehicle while bicycling near the intersection of Highway 11 and Kipimana Street on the Big Island. The incident happened on Sunday Jan. 27 at approximately 8:30 a.m.
A vehicle was executing a left turn onto Highway 11 when it struck the bicyclist, 68-year-old Perry.
