KONA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A man was killed and a woman was injured during a two car crash on the Big Island on Wednesday night.

Hawaii County Fire Department officials say a mid-size sedan rear-ended a utility truck and crashed on the Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway in Kona.

The two patients needed to be extricated from their car, authorities say. The male, who was driving the car, later died from his injuries.

The highway was shut down for several hours while Big Island police conducted an investigation. The road was re-opened at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
