Two people seriously hurt after two-car crash on H-1


A two-car crash on the H-1 Freeway eastbound Sunday night has left a woman in serious condition and a man in critical condition.

At about 9 p.m., a car eastbound on the H-1 collided about 3,600 feet east of the Kunia off-ramp when the driver in the center lane attempted to get into the right lane, lost control and sideswiped another car in the left lane.

Both cars slammed into the concrete median and overturned.

The driver of the car that went out of control, a 59-year-old Waipahu man, is in critical condition. His two passengers were in serious condition but treated at the hospital and later released.

The driver of the car that was sideswiped and the three of four passengers were sent to the hospital in serious condition but later released as well.

But the fourth passenger, a 52-year-old Waipahu woman, remains in the hospital in serious condition.

Police say alcohol may have been a contributing factor, but it’s not known if speed was a factor.

Several eastbound lanes of the H-1 were closed from Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) because of the crash.
