WAILUA — A Toyota pickup truck wound up in the ocean near the Wailua Golf Course on Monday.

The male driver sustained a laceration to his leg, but refused medical treatment at the scene. The two passengers who were in the vehicle were not injured.

The driver hired a recovery team to assist in removing the vehicle from the ocean.
