Minor injuries in Friday Lihu‘e vehicle accident

LIHU‘E — A portion of Rice Street in Lihu‘e was closed in both directions for three hours late on Friday following a traffic collision.

According to a preliminary report, at approximately 11:25 p.m., a two-vehicle collision was reported on Rice Street fronting the Rice Shopping Center. An on-scene investigation revealed that a Toyota pickup operated by a 19-year-old female of Lawa‘i was traveling eastbound on Rice Street when it crossed the center line and struck an oncoming car. The impact caused the pickup to flip several times before coming to rest on its roof.

The 19-year-old driver and 17-year-old male passenger were both transported to Wilcox Medical Center and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The 37-year-old male operator of the vehicle that was struck did not sustain any injuries.
