Single vehicle crash Sunday morning closed Kuhio Hwy. on Kauai

Three people escaped serious injury early Sunday morning in a single vehicle crash that closed Kuhio Hwy. at mile marker 25 near Kalihiwai Bridge on Kauai.

The driver, 19-year-old Robin Mark Raza of Kilauea, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of an intoxicant.

At approximately 3:15 a.m., a southbound grey Toyota pickup flipped onto its roof when Raza apparently lost control of the vehicle.

He and his two passengers, aged 20 and 16 and also residents of Kilauea, sustained minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.

Kuhio Highway was closed between Kahiliholo Road and North Kalihiwai Road for approximately two hours while police investigated the cause of the crash.
