PUNALUU, Hawaii — Traffic investigators are looking into what caused a deadly crash in Hauula Thursday afternoon.

The head-on crash between a minivan and a military transport truck happened near the corner of Kamehameha Highway and Puhuli Street at about 2:30 p.m.

A woman in her 50s was pronounced dead at the scene, an Emergency Medical Services spokesman said. She was a passenger in one of the vehicles, EMS spokesman Bryan Cheplic said.

The Marines’ vehicle crossed the centerline, Honolulu police said.
