Kona woman critically injured in Highway 190 crash

A 26-year-old Kailua-Kona woman suffered severe injuries following a single-vehicle crash early Friday on Highway 190 at mile marker 7 in South Kohala.

Responding to a 5:24 a.m. call, police determined that a gold 2007 Honda Accord heading north crossed the double solid yellow line of highway, also known as Mamalahoa Highway, and lost control. The vehicle then struck several rocks, ejecting the driver who was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman was transported to the North Hawaii Community Hospital and later transported to The Queen’s Medical Center, where she is currently listed in critical condition.

Police believe that speed and impairment are possible factors in the crash.
