Accident closes Ka Uka off-ramp of H-2 in northbound direction

WAIPIO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police say speed may have been a factor in the turnover crash of a tractor-trailer off of the Ka Uka Boulevard exit early Thursday morning.

The driver of the truck, which is marked with the logo of the K-Line shipping company, told police that he lost control of his rig while making a left-hand turn at the top of the Ka Uka Boulevard exit off the H-2 northbound around 4:30 a.m.

The truck rolled onto its right side and the driver was not hurt.

Police have opened a motor vehicle accident case. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.

Police say the roadway is sloped to the right and downward and could have also caused the rig's load to shift and pull the trailer over during the turn.

Police say the truck was headed to the Foodland grocery store nearby to make a delivery of goods that the driver had just picked up from the docks.

No other vehicle was involved and no one else was injured in the crash.

The H-2 North Ka Uka Boulevard exit was closed until around 10:30 a.m.

Tow truck crews worked for hours to get the truck upright around 8 a.m. but it took a few more hours to remove it from the scene and reopen the lanes.
