Man arrested in McCully vehicle accident

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Honolulu police shut down a portion of Metcalf Avenue Monday morning after a vehicle knocked down a telephone pole.

Police arrested a 41-year-old man for Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant (OVUII). They say he was coming over the McCully bridge around 2:35 a.m. when he lost control of his Toyota SUV, hit a curb and slammed into the telephone pole then smashed into the corner of a chain link fence surrounding a home. Police say the driver was not seriously hurt in the crash.

The homeowner, who did not want to be on camera, said he was awakened by the commotion. He'd been sleeping in the corner room and says the telephone pole likely stopped the vehicle from crashing into the corner of his house and hurting him. He noted that another vehicle did crash into the side of the home during the 1980's. No one was hurt in that incident.

Hawaiian Telcom and Wavecom Solutions crews are working on Metcalf Avenue between Dole Street and Wilder Avenue. They say it could take till around noon before they're able to replace and reconnect the telephone and internet fiber-optic lines on the pole that had been seated in concrete. The crews say there were no service disruptions because of the downed pole.

I made lots of press statements Monday, last week and we had a hearing," said Ige. Some lawmakers say he should have addressed it, but others disagreed. "The elephant in the room was that there was no mention of the fiasco missile alert," said Rep Gene Ward (R-Hawaii Kai-Kalama Vall...
