Woman motorcyclist killed in crash was Navy veteran and military spouse

According to the Honolulu Star Advertiser, a motorcyclist who was killed in a head-on collision in Waiaula was a former Navy personnel, whose husband is in the military:

Meanwhile, the Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the woman killed in Saturday’s head-on collision between a motorcycle and a Jeep on Kaukonahua Road as 26-year-old Brenda Anderson of Honolulu.

According to police, Anderson was riding northward at a high rate of speed when she lost control of her Harley-Davidson  motorcycle and collided with the Jeep. Anderson was taken to Wahiawa General Hospital in critical condition and was later pronounced dead. The two occupants of the Jeep were not seriously uninjured.

In a message posted on a local Harley-Davidson online forum last month, Anderson, a native of Wisconsin, identified herself as former Navy personnel.

“Husband still serves while I’m out enjoying the freedom of the road,” she wrote.

This is the second military spouse killed in a motorcycle accident in seven months.  In October 2010, a woman who lost control of her motorcycle was run over and killed by another cyclist on the Pali Highway.
