First responders called Thursday’s three-car collision in Haleiwa a horrific crash. The tow truck driver who responded says it was the worse accident he’s seen.
Glenn Rego says even after years on the road, he’s never been called to a crash scene where debris was spread out over such a wide distance and a car split in two.
The Volkswagen bug that sits at All Island Towing’s base yard is barely recognizable. The car: smashed, ripped open, and split in two.
“I got a call before I responded saying that the car was split in half, but I had no idea it would being the places that it was,” says Rego.
He was called to respond to a three-car crash on Kamehameha Highway near the Haleiwa coffee fields Thursday afternoon.
“It was really bad, horrible, a horrifying scene… too much to describe,” says Rego.
He’s still at a loss for words, trying to make sense of what caused such a horrific crash. Even after years on the road, he has never been called to a crash scene where debris was spread out over such a wide distance.
