2 seriously injured after car hits utility pole near Kahana Bay

Emergency Medical Services transported two men to a trauma hospital early today after their vehicle struck a utility pole near Kahana Bay Beach Park in Windward Oahu.

The crash occurred at about 12:40 a.m. EMS Spokeswoman Shayne Enright said the vehicle, operated by a 33-year-old man, veered off Kamehameha Highway and struck the pole near the boat ramp.

It’s unclear at this time what caused the vehicle to veer off the roadway.

Paramedics transported the driver and his passenger, 37, to the hospital in serious condition.

Hawaiian Electric Co. reported approximately 990 customers suffered a power outage due to the damaged pole. As of 7 a.m., power had been restored to all but four customers.

Repair crew members are currently replacing the pole. Meanwhile, a contraflow lane has been set up for motorists heading townbound on Kamehameha Highway until repairs are completed. HECO Spokeswoman Shannon Tangonan said they hope pole replacement work will be completed by noon today.
