KILAUEA –Kuhio Highway, south of Kalihiwai Bridge, was closed for roughly four hours Monday afternoon following a two-car crash that resulted in injuries.
The collision occurred shortly after noon, when a northbound Chevy SUV apparently crossed the center line and struck an oncoming Chevy pickup truck.
Firefighters needed to extricate the 34-year-old male driver of the SUV from his vehicle. He was transported to Wilcox Hospital where here remains with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The female driver of the pickup, age 45, and her 44-year-old female passenger, both of Lihue, were also injured and transported to Wilcox Hospital in stable condition.
Police closed the highway in both directions until approximately 4:20 p.m. to allow traffic investigators to conduct an on-scene investigation.
