Police said the man was traveling west at about 11:15 p.m. on Kaumualii Highway, near the Eleele Shopping Center, when he struck a utility pole along the westbound shoulder of the highway.

Police said the man’s white Toyota pickup truck rolled over onto its side, and he suffered minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.
