A 50-year-old man died in a two-car collision near the former Crouching Lion Inn early today.
The accident occurred at about 5:19 a.m. at 51-666 Kamehameha Highway near Trout Farm Road in Kahana Valley, and involved a Mustang and a pickup truck, according to Honolulu Fire Spokesman Capt. David Jenkins.
Jenkins and police said the Mustang was traveling northbound on the highway and collided head-on with the pickup truck traveling southbound.
The Mustang driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has yet to be released.
The pickup driver and passenger, both approximately 50, were taken to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.
