HAUULA (KHNL) - A single car crash involving five juveniles claimed the lives of two teens early Saturday morning.  The accident happened at 4:24 on Kamehameha Highway just north of Kaupau Place in Hauula. 

Police say the car was traveling south when it ran off the road, struck a utility pole, severed a fire hydrant and then hit another pole before coming to a stop.  A 15 year-old male driver and a female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.  A second female passenger was taken to the hospital in serious condition.  

Kamehameha Highway was closed in both directions and traffic was being turned around at Kokololio Beach Park until a contra-flow lane was created with the help of a near by construction site.  Both lanes reopened just before 11am.
