Woman injured in 2-vehicle crash on Kauai

LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Kapaa woman was injured in a two-vehicle collision Tuesday morning along Kuhio Highway at the Kauai Beach Drive junction, police said.

According to a preliminary report, at around 11:30 a.m., the woman -- a passenger in a white Chevy truck -- was traveling northbound on the inside lane of Kuhio Highway when it was broadsided by a gray Mazda sedan that was turning left onto the highway from Kauai Beach Resort. This caused the driver of the truck to lose control, veer onto the northbound shoulder and collide into two palm trees.

The victim was taken to Wilcox Hospital for treatment. It is not clear what her condition is.

Police closed the northbound outer lane for about 30 minutes.
