MEDIA RELEASE

A 20-year-old male was critically injured Friday morning (June 6, 2004) when his BMW sedan collided with a state dump truck on Hawaii Belt Road (Route 19) near Laupahoehoe in North Hilo.

Responding to a 9:42 a.m. call, police determined that the victim was driving north when he apparently lost control of his vehicle, which crossed the center line and struck a state dump truck heading in the opposite direction.

The victim was taken to the Hilo Medical Center and later flown to Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, where he was reported in critical condition.

The driver of the dump truck was not injured in the crash.
