A 17-year old male was detained by police on Kauai on multiple counts following two car crashes just minutes apart.

Officials say the male was driving a Jeep at near Kukui Grove Center when he rear-ended a Chevy driven by a 48-year old male visitor from Colorado. It happened at 2:35 p.m. Friday.

Then he left the scene and attempted to turn left onto Anonui Road near Kauai Community College where he collided with a Nissan driven by a 32-year old woman. The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries to her neck, arms and legs. 

Both the juvenile and Colorado visitor were not injured.

The 17-year old was detained for second degree negligent injury, accidents involving bodily injury, leaving the scene of an accident with damages and no insurance.

Both crashes caused traffic in the area for around an hour.
