Crash brings down pole, power lines on Kalaeloa Blvd.

A single-vehicle crash near Campbell Industrial Park early Monday morning prompted a road closure that lasted for most of the day.

The crash occurred on Kalaeloa Boulevard near the Malakole Street intersection. Police say it brought down a pole, taking power lines with it.

Kalaeloa Boulevard was closed in both directions as crews worked on repairs. It was reopened by 4:30 p.m.

The closure affected an industrial area and caused serious headaches for commercial trucks and those trying to get to work.

The downed pole was a joint utility pole shared by Hawaiian Electric, Hawaiian Telcom, and Oceanic Cable, and their respective crews had to stand by while the other finished their repair work.

The downed power lines also blocked refuse disposal at the City and County of Honolulu’s H-POWER waste-to-energy plant.

No word of any injuries of the driver, or what lead to the crash.
