All lanes of Kamehameha Highway reopened near Kawela Bay

OAHU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A geyser of water shot high into the air Monday morning following an accident near Kawela Bay on Oahu’s North Shore.

All lanes of traffic have since been reopened. At one point, the highway was shut down in both directions between Kawela Bay and Crawford’s Convalescent.

The crash broke a water hydrant and brought down power lines, knocking out power to about 500 people, according to HECO’s outage map.

Witnesses said the accident may have involved a vehicle and a motorcycle. The drivers are believed to have fled the scene.
