Kauai police looking for driver in hit-and-run crash in Wailua Homesteads

Kauai Police are still looking for a driver who crashed into a utility pole early Friday morning in Wailua Homesteads, causing the pole to fall onto the front windshield of a pickup truck and injure the woman inside, county officials said. 

A black Dodge truck with a white camper was traveling west on Kuamoo Road around 2:30 a.m. when it apparently veered off the road and hit a wooden fence before striking the utility pole, officials said. The sheared utility pole fell onto the front windshield of a white Dodge pickup truck that was also headed west.

The 20-year-old woman driving the white pickup was transported to Wilcox Hospital and has since been released, officials said. The driver of the black Dodge fled the scene before police arrived, but officers soon after spotted a vehicle matching its description on Kamalu Road.

Officials said the unoccupied 1990 black Dodge truck with a white camper displayed severe front-end damage but the owners had previously reported it stolen.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call Kauai police at 241-1711 or CrimeStoppers at 241-1887.
