NANAKULI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
One woman has died and several others were injured during a multi-vehicle car crash in Nanakuli on Sunday night.
Police closed two west bound lanes and one east bound lane of Farrington Highway near the Kahe Power Station as they investigated the crash, which occurred shortly before 8:30 p.m., according to police.
Police investigators say the crash happened when a car being driven by 34-year-old Margaret Lavin, of Mililani, was heading east on Farrington Highway. Police say she crossed the center median into oncoming traffic, sideswiping another car. The two occupants of that car, an adult woman and a female child, were uninjured.
After crossing the center median and sideswiping one car, police say the vehicle then continued heading east and slammed into a third car containing seven occupants.
Lavin was reportedly thrown from her vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
The seven occupants of the third vehicle—three adult females, one adult male, two girls and one boy—were all taken to the hospital in good condition.
Police say it is unknown at this point if speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the crash.
The fatality was Oahu's 11th of the year, compared with 8 at the same time in 2012.
