HONOLULU (KHON2) — The woman who died in Tuesday’s single-vehicle collision in Waianae has been identified as 28-year-old Destiny Alconcel.

Police said the vehicle continued forward and proceeded to collide with a guard rail, which resulted in her death. EMS reported that the incident happened at approximately 7:30 a.m.
Speed, alcohol or drugs do not appear to be contributing factors in the collision at this time. Police say distracted driving may have been a factor.
In a separate incident on June 1, two 24-year-old men sustained multiple injuries following an apparent head-on collision on Kunia and Plantation Roads at approximately 6 a.m.
Both men were taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition after being treated by EMS.
Police saw a wave of traffic fatalities over the Memorial Day weekend and are reminding drivers that speeding, impaired, and distracted driving could put you in a place much worse than jail.
