A 28-year-old male driver was seen weaving on Kamehameha Highway near Waikane Valley Road Tuesday morning before he collided with a utility pole and died, police said.
The collision, which caused the utility pole to lean over, was reported around 7:15 a.m. and temporarily caused the closure of both lanes of Kamehameha Highway before police opened a contraflow lane.
The driver had been
traveling west on Kamehameha Highway and was seen veering across the eastbound lane before crashing into the pole, police said. Speed is believed to be a
factor in the crash, police said.
Paramedics responded and helped pronounce the man dead at the scene at 48-367 Kamehameha Highway.
