Police reopen 2 town-bound lanes on Farrington Highway near Kahe Point

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:31 p.m. HST, Dec 30, 2012

Police reopened two town-bound lanes of Farrington Highway near Kahe Point this afternoon as crews complete repairs on a utility pole knocked down in a crash Saturday night that sent an 18-year-old woman to the hospital.

One Waianae-bound lane remained closed early this afternoon.

The highway was initially closed in both directions, but was later contra-flowed as utility crews responded to the area Saturday night.

The Emergency Medical Services Department reported that paramedics took an 18-year-old woman, the driver of a vehicle that hit a utility pole and knocked down power lines, to the hospital in serious condition following the 10:25 p.m. crash on Farrington near Kahe Point.

Replace wooden poles with metal ones like light or traffic light poles. Not going break if car hits and not going take down other poles and lines. The speeding car split in half when it hit the metal pole by Schofield last month when the guys were trying to get away from the cops. Pole only had paint and scratches, neva even move. Easier to replace metal poles, just unbolt at base, then replace. Wooden poles you gotta cut into pieces, dig out whatever pole left in ground, dig puka to put in new pole. Electricity out for hours. This month had pole down in Kaaawa, about 3 poles down by domino effect by Stadium, knocked out electricity all day. Wooden poles get termite damage and wood rot, too. HECO, spend the money and use metal poles, cuz you keep on raising rates anyway.
