Kaumualii Highway in Kaumakani was closed in both directions for several hours following a critical head-on crash around 3 o’clock Saturday morning.
A Kekaha man, 36, was initially taken to Wilcox Hospital. He was then medevaced to Queen’s Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
The 36-year-old was the driver of a Toyota sedan that was hit head-on by a Mazda sedan that Kauai police say was heading east on the highway when it apparently crossed the center line.
The male driver of the Mazda, age 39, and his 47-year-old female passenger, both from Kaumakani, were also transported to Wilcox Hospital with serious injuries.
All lanes have since been reopened.
