Tow truck driver flees scene of crash (HI)


Recommended Posts

The driver of a flatbed tow truck fled after knocking over a traffic signal light in a collision with a sedan Wednesday night on Maui Veterans Highway at Hansen Road, police said.


The crash occurred at 7:38 p.m. when a Mercedes sedan tried to turn left from the highway onto Hansen Road and collided into the tow truck that was traveling northbound on the highway, police said. The force of the collision caused the tow truck to hit and knock over the traffic light, police said.


A 25-year-old Haiku woman driving the Mercedes reported no injuries, police said.


A 57-year-old Kahului woman who was a passenger in the tow truck was treated at the scene by medics for minor injuries, police said. The tow truck driver, a 36-year-old Kula man, fled the scene before officers arrived, police said.

An investigation is continuing.


A portion of Maui Veterans Highway was closed, with Kahului-bound lanes redirected onto Hansen Road, according to police. The road was reopened by 5:22 a.m. Thursday.
