Puna police are warning motorists that a traffic accident has backed up traffic along the Keaau-Pahoa Road (Route 130).
A 3:45 p.m. accident at about the three-mile marker in the vicinity of Kipuka Farms and the Humane Society knocked over utility polls and blocked traffic along the road. Police said traffic was backed up 10 minutes later all the way into Keaau.
The electric and telephone companies have dispatched work crews to repair the damage, police said, but they had no estimate on when the road would be cleared for traffic again.
There were no reports of injuries or other details of the accident immediately available.
