September 8, 2022 – Hawaii Files Photo of the Day
The yellow tractor trailer truck shown in these series of photos, crashed into a monkeypod tree on Kapiolani Blvd. near the Ala Moana area First Hawaiian Bank branch on Thursday, September 8. It was a normal late afternoon before dusk and I was on a walk to Ala Moana Center. Came upon this scene and too a few photos with my Google Pixel 4a smartphone.
I am not too clear on the circumstances surrounding this crash. Did the tree fall on the truck or did the truck crash into the tree? Doesn’t seem like a truck crash into the tree as the front end seems to be mostly OK near the grill and lights area. Yes the cab module is twisted, with pieces of tree apparently impaling the cab. I am not too sure.
