Police looking for driver

HANALEI — Kauai police are searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident on Saturday night in Hanalei.

According to a preliminary investigation, a dark-colored sedan traveling north on Kuhio Highway fronting the Tahiti Nui restaurant apparently struck a 47-year-old male visitor from Canada along the road about 9 p.m.

The man sustained lacerations to his head and was transported to Wilcox Hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to a county statement.

The sedan left the scene before officers arrived and police have not yet located the car or driver. The investigation continues.

Anyone with information on this incident or the vehicle in question is asked to call police at 241-1711. Anonymous tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 246-8300.

    This should be solved by the end of the day. 7 of 10 autos on the island are Pick-up trucks. “Dark Sedan”? Hit the Car Rental Companies, then hit DMV for “Dark Sedan”. Solved.
