Two injured when truck flips on Molokai
A pickup truck traveling east on Molokai's Maunaloa Highway hit a guardrail and flipped on its roof Thursday morning, injuring its two 86-year-old occupants, Maui police said.
The male passenger was flown by helicopter to Maui Memorial Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition, police said. The female driver was taken to Molokai General Hospital in stable condition and then airlifted to the Queen's Medical Center on Oahu.
Both victims were residents of Kaluakoi Villas on Molokai's west end. Molokai police responded to the call Thursday morning around 6:40 a.m.
According to a preliminary investigation, the vehicle was traveling east on the highway when it drifted left and ran into the guardrail on the north shoulder of the roadway. After striking the guardrail, the vehicle continued in a southwesterly direction to the south shoulder of the roadway and climbed an embankment, which caused the vehicle to flip on its roof, pinning the two occupants within.
Police said they had not determined if speed, drugs or alcohol were involved. The accident remained under investigation.
