Overturned Vehicle Shuts Down H-1 Freeway

(KHNL) - Cars are nowhere to be seen on the H-1 Freeway after a single car crash just before eight o'clock Wednesday night.

It's the second time in less than 24 hours a serious accident shut down westbound traffic.

In this latest crash, a car overturned with two people inside.

It happened on the right hand side of the freeway just past the airport offramp, westbound.

Two people were reportedly in the car at the time of the crash.

Police tell us a female victim was initially trapped inside the vehicle.  

Rescue personal eventually got her out of the car using the jaws of life.

She was taken by ambulance to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition.

Traffic is being diverted from the H-1 westbound onto Kamehameha Highway.

Its not known how long the viaduct will be closed.
