Wailua, HI – One Dead in Alcohol-Induced Rollover Crash on Kuamoo Rd

July 17, 2022

Wailua, HI (July 16, 2022) – Kauai police have indicated that alcohol was most likely a factor in a collision that resulted in the death of a 21-year-old man from Wailua on Wednesday, July 13th.

Police say the crash occurred at about 2:15 a.m. on Kuamoo Road in Wailua. The impact caused the victim’s 19979 Toyota Tacoma to overturn. 

Emergency responders found the man unresponsive. He was taken by ambulance to Wilcox Medical Center in Lihue where he died a short while later. 

Kuamoo Road was shut down for roughly two hours while investigators worked the scene.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation, however, police said their initial report shows alcohol may have been involved. 

This is the sixth fatal auto crash on Kauai in 2022.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
