LIHU‘E – A female driver heading into Lihu‘e in a Dodge sedan at approximately 6:50 p.m. Thursday was involved in two traffic crashes along Kuhio Highway, according to a county press release.
The 19-year-old Lihu‘e woman apparently sideswiped a gray Ford pick-up just north of the Kaua‘i Beach Resort entrance near Hanama‘ulu and continued driving towards Lihu‘e.
A few hundred yards further near the three-mile marker, she crossed the centerline and collided with a green Jeep.
The woman sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported by medics to Wilcox Memorial Hospital for treatment.
No other parties involved in the incidents were injured.
