A portion of Kaumualii Highway in the vicinity of Kauai Nursery was closed in both directions for under an hour on Tuesday, following a single-vehicle crash.
One person sustained non-life-threatening injuries, was treated at Wilcox Hospital, and later released.
According to a preliminary report, at approximately 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the driver of a Chevy Tahoe traveling eastbound on Kaumualii Highway fell asleep at the wheel. The vehicle veered off the roadway onto the eastbound shoulder, and rolled to its side.
Kauai Police closed a portion of Kaumualii Highway until around 6:20 p.m. to allow the totaled vehicle to be towed.
Westbound traffic was diverted onto Puhi Road, while eastbound traffic was diverted onto Kipu Road.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor, according to officials.
