Deadly crash causes Farrington Highway traffic backup
Honolulu police are investigating a deadly car crash that happened on Farrington Highway near Honokai Hale.
It happened Friday around 9 p.m., where a man in his 30s died.
Traffic investigators say the man was driving westbound on Farrington Highway when he hit a car also driving westbound.
The driver lost control, crossed the center median and was struck by a car driving eastbound, driven by a 50-year-old man.
Emergency Medical Services officials say the 50-year-old man suffered minor injuries.
Farrington Highway was closed in the eastbound direction following the crash and led to a major traffic back up.
The highway was reopened just past midnight.
Police have ruled out speed as a factor, and now are looking into whether alcohol was a factor in this fatal crash.
