A 31-year-old Kona woman was involved in a one-vehicle traffic casualty Monday evening (September 21) in Kailua-Kona.

She was identified as Keri Flores of Kailua-Kona.

Responding to a 7:41 p.m. call Monday, police determined that Flores was a passenger in a 2015 Nissan Sentra that had been traveling east on Manawalea Street when she fell out of the passenger side of the vehicle and sustained life threatening injuries.
