3 people seriously injured in crash on Kahekili Highway

KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police are investigating a near head-on collision involving two vehicles on Kahekili Highway just before 5 a.m. Friday.

Emergency Medical Services officials say two 18-year-old men were taken to the Queen's Medical Center in serious condition as well as a 76-year-old man also listed in serious condition.

Police say the 18-year-old driver and passenger were headed town bound in a Mercedes sedan. Officers say, for some reason, the driver swerved into oncoming Kahuku-bound traffic and sideswiped the other car, a SUV driven by the 76-year-old man, nearly head-on.

Police are investigating whether or not drugs and alcohol where factors in the crash.

The road had been contraflowed for the morning commute but has since been reopened to traffic.
