As KSSK's traffic reporter, Jason Yotsuda spends much of his time telling his listeners about highway accidents in Honolulu. On Monday morning he called the station to report his own.

One thing is clear: It wasn't Yotsuda's fault. The other vehicle was barreling along on H-1 in the wrong direction. It was 4:45 a.m., well before sunrise, on the highway near the Punchbowl onramp. Yotsuda said he was heading west at 55 mph, in the left lane.
"I saw his headlights," Yotsuda recalled yesterday.
...
But Yotsuda was unhurt.
He called police. There wasn't much traffic at the time, Yotsuda said, but another driver pulled over and told police the vehicle heading the wrong way was a dark-colored Dodge Ram pickup truck.
...
Yotsuda, 48, was heading to the Great Aloha Run and had just passed the westbound onramp to H-1 from Punchbowl Street when he was hit.
"Everything happened so fast, there was no time to have any kind of feeling except reaction," he said. "Afterwards I was a little shaken. It was not until I tried to go to sleep when everything really played out in my mind. I was kind of upset at the guy for not stopping."
A traffic reporter for 11 years, Yotsuda never made it to the Great Aloha Run. But he kept his head and did his job.
"It's kind of trippy because usually I report, and this time I was in it, so I called the station and I reported my own accident," he said with a chuckle.

The Toyota was driven by radio and television traffic reporter Jason Yotsuda, who said he was surprised police did not make a greater effort to find the wrong-way driver.

"It's amazing more people didn't get hurt," Yotsuda said.
Yotsuda swerved away from the oncoming truck, which hit the side of his vehicle and kept going Koko Head-bound in the Ewa-bound lanes. Yotsuda was not injured.
On the police tapes, a stunned Yotsuda calls 911 to report the incident at 4:47 a.m., about three minutes after the first 911 call.
"There's a car driving the wrong way on the freeway," Yotsuda tells the dispatcher.
