    Traffic cameras showed police cars blocking Likelike Highway and turning vehicles around at Kula Kolea Drive this afternoon.

An accident involving an overturned vehicle in the Likelike Highway tunnel injured three people and closed the highway for about two hours this afternoon, officials said.

Paramedics treated and took three people to the hospital following the multi-vehicle crash, according to an Emergency Medical Services report. The patients — a 19-year-old woman, a 39-year-old man and a 66-year-old man — were reported in stable condition.

The Likelike Highway in the Kaneohe-bound direction reopened after crews cleared the accident scene.

The highway was shut down completely around 3 p.m. and reopened by about 5 p.m., Honolulu police said.

Traffic cameras showed police stopping vehicles at Kula Kolea Drive and diverting traffic from continuing on the highway.

    • If only there was a way to make it so all driver’s tests included a “drive in the rain” component. Maybe we could simulate it by having the driving instructor spritz a few drops of water on the windshield with a spray bottle. Even that minimally insignificant challenge would probably result in half of test takers failing.
