Police re-opened the westbound lanes of Kamehameha Highway shortly after 6:15 p.m. Officers were clearing the roadway of debris from a car crash.

Officers say a military police car was heading westbound on Kamehameha Highway around 4:40 p.m. when it struck a civilian car at a Radford Drive intersection near the Makalapa gate. The military police car then struck a traffic light and flipped over twice.

All three people involved are in good condition. The two people in the civilian car and the one in the military police car were wearing seat belts and were still taken to the hospital.

Traffic was backed up for about 1 ½ hours.
