KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A single-vehicle crash in Kipu on Kauai on Thursday night prompted authorities to close both directions of Kaumualii Highway, between Anonui Street and Puhi Road, early Friday. 

The highway was closed from 12:30 a.m. to about 8:30 a.m. and traffic was being diverted onto Puhi Road and the Kipu Bypass Road.

According to police, a Ford pickup truck was traveling west on the highway when it veered off and struck a telephone pole along the westbound shoulder. The pole fell over the roadway.

No injuries were reported.
