Several westbound lanes of the H-1 freeway were closed in the Pearl City area on Friday morning following an automobile accident.
Video from the scene showed an overturned car blocking the two left lanes of the freeway before the Pearl City exit.
The vehicle was cleared from the roadway by about 11:30 a.m., but traffic was backed up for miles.
