Two Kauai men were hospitalized after a pickup truck crashed into a rock wall on Lawai Road in Koloa late Thursday night.

According to police, a Nissan pickup truck was heading east shortly before midnight, when the driver of the truck apparently lost control and struck the rock wall fronting 4800 Lawai Road.

The 19-year-old driver of the truck and his passenger, age 19, both of Koloa, sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transported by medics to Wilcox Hospital.

Lawai Road was closed in both directions for roughly four hours while traffic safety investigators conducted an investigation.

Police say they believe speed and alcohol may have been contributing factors to the crash.
