Crash closes freeway for hours
West-bound H-1 traffic was jammed for hours last night at the Punchbowl Street on-ramp after a one-car accident that left the driver in critical condition.
City paramedics transported a man in his 60s in critical condition to a trauma center, said Bryan Cheplic, Honolulu Emergency Services Department spokesman.
The accident was reported at 6:50 p.m.
It forced the closure of the Pali on-ramp and inconvenienced west-bound drivers for miles on the H-1.
