Lihue man arrested after driving truck into ocean

LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A Līhu‘e man was arrested Saturday after driving his pickup truck into the ocean near Lydgate Beach at around 4 p.m.

The driver, who was alone in the vehicle at the time of the incident, had already exited his Ford F-150 without injury by the time police and firefighters responded to the scene.

According to police, the man had been driving his truck along the beach, in an area known as Kitchens behind the Wailua Golf Course, when the truck was struck by a wave that pulled it into the surf.

Three tow companies were needed to pull the fully submerged truck from the water.

Norman Akana, Jr., age 38, was subsequently arrested for Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant, Refusal to Submit to Testing, and Reckless Driving.

He remains in Police Cellblock today in lieu of $4,000 bail.
