HILO, HI – Hawai’i Island police said four people were injured, one critically, in a collision in Hilo on Wednesday night.

A report by Big Island Now stated that the accident happened on Daniel K. Inouye Highway near the 9-mile marker, where police were called to the scene shortly after 6 p.m.

An investigation found the driver of a westbound Ford Expedition SUV spun out, crossed the center line and struck a Toyota Sienna passenger van.

An 18-year-old woman in the SUV was critically injured and airlifted to Queens Medical Center in O’ahu.  Three other people in the SUV and the driver of the van, a 32-year-old Hilo man, were taken to Hilo Medical Center with undisclosed injuries.  The occupants of the SUV were all members of a family from South Carolina.

A negligent injury investigation by Hilo Patrol officers is underway.  It is believed that speeding and wet road conditions were contributing factors in the collision.
