Whale bones go from the shore to the street

KAHUKU (KHNL) - The bones of a beached Sperm whale in Kahuku went from the shore to the street when they fell off the back of a truck Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Kahekili Highway and Haiku Road in Kaneohe.

Traffic was backed up for miles as Honolulu Fire Department crews washed down the biohazard material from the decomposing whale bones.

According to traffic management's Danielle Tucker Kaneohe felt the brunt of the traffic.
