Man critically injured, extricated from car in Haleakala Hwy crash

On 05/23/16 at 8:19pm Wailuku officers responded to Haleakala Highway, just above Firebreak Road., in Kahului regarding a motor vehicle accident. This accident resulted in a temporary closure of that intersection.

Upon investigation, it was determined that a vehicle was traveling north down Haleakala Highway when the driver lost control and crossed over the undivided center median and collided into another vehicle which was headed in the opposite direction, up Haleakala Highway. The north bound vehicle then continued on and collided into two other vehicles that were also traveling up Haleakala Highway.

As a result, a 21 year old male from Kihei was extricated from one of the vehicles by Fire Department Personnel and was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition. The injuries of the other people/vehicles involved in this accident ranged from none to minor injuries. The only other person transported to the hospital was a minor who was transported in good condition.

The investigation revealed that one of the vehicles involved was reported stolen, the morning of 05/23/2016.

The involvement of speed, drugs, and alcohol are still pending as the investigation is ongoing.
