Honolulu police closed Kalanianaole Highway between the Makai Pier and the Makapuu lookout for more than an hour after a three-vehicle accident this afternoon.

Police said the crash happened just after 1 p.m. Saturday near Makapuu Beach Park. The highway reopened by 2:30 p.m.

A Honolulu Fire Department spokesman said the three-vehicle crash injured involved six people and that five of those people were transported for treatment: two in serious condition to the Queen’s Medical Center and three in less serious condition to Castle Medical Center. 

Those injured include a 13-year-old boy and at least one man and one woman of unknown ages, according to an Emergency Medical Services report.
