The accident occurred shortly before noon on the north-bound lane of Kanoelehua Avenue in front of the Puainako KTA supermarket.
According to preliminary information from police, both of the vehicle’s occupants were able to exit the upside-down Saturn on their own.
The 31-year-old driver was taken to the hospital as a precaution, police said. The vehicle’s 33-year-old passenger was apparently not injured.
Both men are from Pahoa.
