The rally comes after a deadly hit & run crash that killed a 3-year old baby Wednesday night. More on this story from Minna Sugimoto.  

KAUAI PILOT ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES 
Also tonight, a pilot who flies rescue and training missions for Kauai County has been arrested on drug charges. Coming up at 5, what authorities say the 36-year old pilot is accused of possessing. 

It'll be a big adjustment in bus schedules if a plan by the City is put into effect. But at least it beats raising fares, according to some of the riders Jim Mendoza spoke with today. That's coming up on Hawaii News Now at 5:30 on KHNL.
