Both lanes of Hwy 19 near Honokaa now closed


Police have closed Highway 19 in both directions at the 42 mile marker.

Traffic is being diverted through Honokaa due to an overturned semi-truck.

The highway is expected to re-open in 1 to 2 hours.

A police spokeswoman said the semi-truck overturned to avoid hitting a car turning left onto the highway from Mamane Street.

Minor injuries have been reported.

Earlier, only the Waimea-bound lane was closed.
