Col­li­sion in Ki­hei closes road

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - HAWAII REPORT -

A col­li­sion on North Ki­hei Road, about 2 miles south of Honoapi­ilani High­way, closed the road to traf­fic for about four hours Wed­nes­day. A white 1990 Ford Ranger fac­ing south on the makai shoul­der of the road made a U-turn and was broad­sided by a garbage truck trav­el­ing south, ac­cord­ing to Maui po­lice.

The driver of the Ranger, a 33-year-old Ki­hei man, was not wear­ing a seat belt and sus­tained life-threat­en­ing in­juries. He was taken to Maui Me­mo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­ter for treat­ment. The op­er­a­tor and pas­sen­ger in the garbage truck were wear­ing their seat belts and not in­jured.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and it was not yet known whether speed, drugs or al­co­hol were fac­tors.
