DRIVER EXTRICATED FROM OVERTURNED VEHICLE ON FREEWAY

On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, the Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) received a 911 call at 9:29 p.m. for a single vehicle accident on the H1, west bound, near the Kaonohi Street overpass. Four HFD units responded with approximately 14 personnel. The first unit arrived at 9:35 p.m. and found a single vehicle at the base of the right shoulder embankment,
resting on its roof.

HFD crews stabilized the vehicle and used battery-powered Hydraulic Rescue Tools to free the driver of the overturned vehicle through the passenger side door. Medical care was quickly handed off to the on scene Emergency Medical Services unit. HFD concluded operations shortly thereafter with no other reported injuries.
