Woman critically injured in early-morning crash on Kaukonahua Rd.

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 27-year-old woman died following a single-vehicle crash on Kaukonahua Road early Wednesday, Honolulu police said.

Authorities responded just before 4 a.m.

Police said the woman was heading in the northbound direction when her vehicle crossed over the center line into oncoming traffic, then rolled over several times.

The woman was thrown from her vehicle, police said.

Emergency Medical Services said she was initially taken to the hospital in critical condition, but police said she later died.

Speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors in this crash.

The crash shut down both directions of Kaukonahua Road near Wilikina Drive, but police reopened lanes about an hour later.
