Critical car crash knocks power in Nanakuli

NANAKULI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A negligent injury case has been opened after a man crashed his car, sending his passenger to the hospital in critical condition Saturday evening.

Police say 22-year old Logan Awong was behind the wheel headed south on Haleakala Avenue at a high rate of speed when he lost control, struck a rock wall, a mailbox, a utility pole, a fire hydrant, a tree, and finally another utility pole before coming to rest.

The crash forced one of the utility poles to come down, resulting in a power outage for about 12-hundred customers.

The driver was taken to Hawaii Medical Center West with only minor injuries.

He was later arrested for drunk driving, driving with a suspended license, and negligent injury.
