Man critically injured after being thrown from truck in Nanakuli

A man was hospitalized in critical condition after a truck crashed into a pole in Nanakuli early Friday morning.

Police have reopened the westbound lanes of Farrington Highway near Auyong Homestead Road, after being closed for the early morning which lead to a traffic backup along the Waianae Coast.

The emergency bypass road earlier in morning was opened to help ease congestion, but has since closed.

The call came in for the crash just before 1:30 a.m. It happened at the address of 87-915 Farrington Highway, fronting a 7-Eleven.

Emergency Medical Services says a 30-year-old male was thrown from a commercial truck and was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

The 21-year-old male driver of the truck was hospitalized in serious condition.
