HULEIA, KAUAI (HAWAIINEWSNOW) -

A single-car crash on Kaumualii Highway near the Halfway Bridge was closed Friday around 9:30 p.m. for about an hour as Kauai police investigated the scene.

Police say the car was traveling west on the inner lane of Kaumualii Highway when it swerved to avoid another vehicle changing lanes, flipped, and landed on its roof on the westbound side of the roadway.

The driver, a 19-year-old Koloa man was able to exit the vehicle following the crash but his 17-year-old female passenger was trapped inside.

The Hanapepe woman was extricated by firefighters and taken to Wilcox Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
