KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kauai police arrested a man following a crash in Waipouli that left a woman with serious injuries Friday night.

She was medevaced to the Queen’s Medical Center on Oahu where she remained Saturday.

Police closed down the road and detoured traffic for several hours to investigate.

Officers arrested Weinstock on suspicion of negligent injury. He has since been released pending further investigation.

All lanes were reopened before 12:45 a.m. Saturday.
