Kahekili Highway was reopened in both directions following a crash involving two vehicles in Windward Oahu.

It happened at around 12:30 p.m. at the Hui Iwa Street intersection, near Koolau Center and Valley of the Temples.

According to police, a Honda Civic was traveling north on the highway when it crossed the center line and hit a south-bound Chevy tow truck head-on.

The Chevy was then rear-ended by a Toyota 4Runner.

The driver of the Honda Civic, a 59-year-old man, was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition.

The driver of the Toyota 4Runner, a 49-year-old man, was hospitalized in good, or stable condition.

The third driver refused treatment.

The crash occurred in clear weather, and it’s unknown if speed or alcohol were factors.

The highway was shut down until just before 3 p.m., with traffic rerouted onto Hui Iwa Street as police investigated and cleared the scene.
